Sorry... it was a move from 32-bit Lenny on a basic P4 server to 64-bit Squeeze on a new quad-core Intel xeon. Both being x86 based, I do believe that it is little endian for both. Both are 2.6 kernel based...
Thanks again! :)
With kind regards. -Peter

I use both Nagios and Smokeping on AMD64 with Debian Squeeze but I
don't use the check_smokeping.pl script. I think it's unlikely that
Perl scripts will be baffled by the change from a 32-bit to a 64-bit
system but one thing I noticed when I first started using the AMD64
(Opteron-based) system was that ping times were all multiples of four
milliseconds because of HPET problems. That was under Debian Etch, a
2.4 kernel, years ago; I had to supply a kernel parameter at boot time
to get the time resolution I wanted. The problems seem to be handled
without my kernel command line tweaks now Debian uses a 2.6 kernel.
You don't say in your mail whether or not you changed the machine
which you're using to run Nagios and Smokeping but if you did I wonder
if endianness is causing problems somewhere.
