[smokeping-users] Smoke Ping Stops Working

my guess is simply that the master node stops polling; try running it
in debug mode.

here's a startup script I use, runs as root but starts daemon off as
user smokeping:

OPTS="--debug-daemon --nodaemon"

cd /usr/local/smokeping
chgrp -R smokeping cache data var
chmod -R g+w cache data var

su - smokeping -s /bin/bash -c "cd /usr/local/smokeping ; bin/smokeping $OPTS"

comment out OPTS when running normally.
