[smokeping-users] Holes in graphs

Hi Eric;

Check your SmokePing logs to see if you're getting a message similar to 
"1 round of polling was longer than step" (or something similar, I can't 
remember the exact error at the moment).

If you are getting that message, then there are a few ways to fix it:

- Increase step time
- Decrease ping count
- Run multiple pollers and split up the hosts to use them.

Running multiple pollers if you're not already is probably the easiest 
fix, because changing the step or ping count will require modifying your 
RRD files.
