I looked through Smokeping.pm hoping to find it hardcoded, and I found a
call to a function called ProbeUnit(). So, I added such a function in my
probe that returns the value to be displayed (it's called automatically):
my $self = shift;
#TODO: We need to know if we are measuring bps or seconds -
depending on measurement (or maybe on probe name).
By the way, this remains a TODO with my speedtest probe - if you measure
ping time you'll get bps as your axis :(. Suggestions welcome.
