smokeping monitors the changetime of the main config file. when it
changes it reloads ...

when you run the smokeping deamon with --reload, this will reload
the daemon and it will start pinging the new targets. BUT the
webinterface runs independently. You would have to kill the speedy
instances ... OR touch the main smokeping config file.
