Smokeping error file does not exist, graphs do not display

Recently our graphs started crashing, only half of them are up now for the ips we monitor. In the error_log this comes up constantly:


[Tue Aug 31 14:24:08 2010] [client x.x.x.x] File does not exist: /home/sp.smokepingserver.com/public_html/favicon.ico
[Tue Aug 31 14:24:17 2010] [client x.x.x.x] File does not exist: /home/sp.smokepingserver.com/public_html/cache/CUS/ccustomer_mini.png, referer: https://sp.smokepingserver.com/cgi-bin/smokeping.cgi?target=CUS
[Tue Aug 31 14:24:17 2010] [client x.x.x.x] File does not exist: /home/sp.smokepingserver.com/public_html/cache/CUS/customername_mini.png, referer: https://sp.smokepingserver.com/cgi-bin/smokeping.cgi?target=CUS

I removed the ips and fqdns.

The graphs that don't show up, when clicking on the broken image, will still show up with graph/stats in the next page. Anyone know what might be causing this?

Thanks in advance!

If you restart or reload the smokeping binary,  does it load or start normally?  If there is a problem with a config file it will normally complain about it when restarting or reloading.

well actually it does give the hostname '' does currently not resolve to an ipv4 address, hup signal sent ot the running smokeping process, exiting.

I read that was normal though.

Another Note, sorry it's late and I'm thinking in phases...in the config
imgurl = ../cache
That's worked in the past but I dunno if it's better to switch that to the full http://smokepingwebsite.com/imgurlfolder or not

If the smokeping process is failing when it tries to start, I'd examine the config file very closely.  There is a good chance that something is wrong in the config and smokeping is failing to launch because of it.

It's not failing when it tries to start, as I posted it's a normal output when starting smokeping.
I've decided to remove the main page and just show standard deviation instead since the techs all get the warnings via email.
