See example 3 in the smokeping_examples document; quoting:

 The top FPing section does not define a probe in itself because it has
 subsections. If we really wanted to have one probe named "FPing",
 we could do so by making a subsection by that name.



Ok well, can't really understand the problem.

RemoteFPing aint depending on FPing right? Then it should be marked with a single plus (+) sign?
And when RemoteFPingChaos aint a real probe it will just be an alias with tweaks that is dependable on RemoteFPing probe?

Or is + RemoteFPing terminated when I specify a sub probe with two plusses ++ ?

Best regards,
