Hey Olly,

 I did this in this way.

1.first creates "devices" folder in /etc/smokeping/.
2.I make a php script to create file for each device inside the devices
ex:- I create  "test_server_1" file in devices folder. In that file

++ test_server_1

 probe = FPing
 menu = test_server_1
 title = This is a test server x.x.x.x
 host = 198.x.x.x
# put ip address to host line.

3.Then go to the /etc/smokeping/config file and I add this line bottom of
the file.

@include /etc/smokeping/devices/test_server_1

4.In /etc/smokeping/config.d/Probes have to say what is the FPing is.

*** Probes ***

+ FPing
binary = /usr/bin/fping

++ FPing
 step = 60

5.Thats all. then restart the smokeping service by

service smokeping  restart

(All those things are done by php script that I made.So hope this will help
