I have fewer cycles available for working on this than I'd like to,
BUT there is progress. The code on


is now able to read smokeping config files and it can show smokeping
configuration documentation on its built in webserver. It is
nowhere near finished, but at least some working code :-)

if you want to play with it, make sure you have at least
perl 5.10 installed on your system.

  git clone https://github.com/oetiker/smokeping-3.x
  cd smokeping-3.x
  ./setup/build-thirdparty.sh /scratch/sp3-test/thirdparty
  ./configure --prefix=/scratch/sp3-test
  make install

then get configuration in place (you can try your 2.x config file)

  cd /scratch/sp3-test/etc
  mv smokeping.cfg.dist smokeping.cfg

now run it

  cd /scratch/sp3-test/bin
  ./smokeping.pl daemon

and you can access the built in documentation browser:


there is much more to come ...
