[smokeping-users] Smokeping graphs randomly stop generating

I was using Fping and Hping - in an effort to troubleshoot this, I
removed all the devices being monitored by Hping from the config file
and it does appear to have kept the graphs generating for a much longer
period of time. I was using the following probe -
http://lists.ee.ethz.ch/p/HPing.pm - and while it didn't seem to be
generating any errors, I hazard a guess at this time that it was the
soruce of the problem.
Hasn't been long enough to be conclusive yet, but I've gone from
restarting Smokeping once or twice a day to having it running over the
entire weekend without any issues. I was using this probe in the
previous version of Smokeping without any issues, but perhaps there is
some issue with it in the newer version I'm using.
I'll keep an eye on the servers I have running for the next few days and
ensure it was the cause of the issue - if not, I will run strace as
suggested and forward the details to the list.
