I guess you changed something.  Upgraded?  Using speedycgi now?

It's known that the various versions of some of the utilities on which
Smokeping calls to do its taks differ in their implementations.  One
interesting way in which they differ is the way you describe.  If you
read the documentation and the scripts themselves you'll see mention
of the issue.  Smokeping does actually try to deal with it itself but
there are cases where it doesn't get the information it needs or else
it just gets it wrong.

You might need to look somewhere like


for the word 'milliseconds'.

The part of the path I've underlined may well be different on your
system, that's just where it happens to be on my Smokeping master.
