Hello All,

I've just installed smokeping 2.6 via yum, all things configured and working but I was unable to control it via sysctl.
After a "systemctl start smokeping.service" doing a "systemctl status smokeping.service" I see smokeping up & running for few seconds and repeating the last command I see:

"smokeping.service - Latency Logging and Graphing System

Why this behaviour?

If I try to launch manually it remain up without problems...

Anyone with the same issue?

Solved!
I found this:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=714439

Basically in F17 into smokeping.service file, there is the wrong ExecStart statement:

ExecStart=/usr/sbin/smokeping

Instead of:

ExecStart=/usr/sbin/smokeping --nodaemon

Now the status is a nice (and green):

systemctl status smokeping.service
