[smokeping-users] /var/log/syslog filling up with strange logging

My first guess is you have more than once instance of smokeping running.  The first one to update the rrd is successful but subsequent attempts fail since the timestamp is the same.

Subject: [smokeping-users] /var/log/syslog filling up with strange logging

So I’m not sure what’s going on here but I noticed that my /var/log/syslog was being populated with the following errors messages. 

sandbox smokeping[18230]: RRDs::update ERROR: /var/lib/smokeping/ClientsStartingWithA/AMERICOMSOLUTIONS~nyj-sandbox01.rrd: illegal attempt to update using time 1452288344 when last update time is 1452288344 (minimum one second step) 

Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this? My server time is correct by the way.
