[smokeping-users] Smokeping graphs randomly stop generating

I've recently upgraded my servers to Ubuntu 8 and have been experiencing
a strange problem with Smokeping. I have Smokeping distributed across a
couple of different servers and I'm having the same problem on both
servers. At random intervals (could be hours or days, but is typically
hours) the graphs will just stop generating. The only log messages I
have when they die is 'MARK'. The daemon appears to be running. If I do
an /etc/init.d/smokeping restart, the graphs begin generating again. My
config is fairly basic, I'm only using fping/hping probes.

Any ideas?
