The probe defined right under the "*** Targets ***" clause is treated as the default probe for all hosts if you don't specify one.   Explicitly specifying a probe for a host/host group is basically just an override.

The same logic is applied to pretty much everything in SmokePing's config file, by the way:  any time you go from a one configuration directive to a 'child' one (e.g. +option to ++suboption), the child inherits all of the options of the parent unless you override them, and the child's children inherit the overridden settings unless you override them again.

(Sorry for the dupe email, Eric, just resending for the benefit of the list -- my original reply got queued for approval due to message size, and I figured it was easier to cancel it and just truncate the reply.)

Looks pretty logical, thanks.  Would I have to define a probe for *every* hostgroup if I did this, or could I leave the SIP_Cust hostgroup (and other hostgroups, like TestCustomers, Employees, etc) alone and as they are now?
