Smokeping itself does not have an API you can query.   However, with a 
bit of work, you can have Smokeping trigger an external API when an 
alert is triggered/raised/cleared.  From the docs:*

to* /(mandatory setting)/
//Either an email address to send alerts to, or the name of a program to 
execute when an alert matches. To call a program, the first character of 
the *to* value must be a pipe symbol "|". The program will the be called 
whenever an alert matches, using the following 5 arguments (except if 
*edgetrigger* is 'yes'; see below): *name-of-alert*, *target*, 
*loss-pattern*, *rtt-pattern*, *hostname*. You can also provide a comma 
separated list of addresses and programs.
