1. Why do you have '/' characters in IP addresses?  I would agree that
the Smokeping documentation is not especially clear, but it does not
suggest that the syntax which you used is acceptable.  According to


the 'host' line can contain lines like this:

host = /world/town/host1 /world/town2/host33 /world/town2/host1~slave

which I assume is meant to be paths to .RRD files in your smokeping
hierarchy - perhaps under /var/lib/smokeping/ or wherever your .RRD
files are stored on your system.

2. Why are you trying to ping IP addresses in the private address space?
Packets to those addresses must not be routed across the Internet, so if
your Smokeping machine is in the same IP address space as the targets
(perhaps in the same CoLo?) then this might work, but otherwise it won't.
