       The tSmoke tool is a commandline tool which interfaces with the SmokePing system.  Its
       main function is to send a message indicating the current status of the systems being
       monitored by Smokeping or an HTML mail file containing the status over the past day, past
       week and past month including an overview.

       Typical crontab used to invoke this are

        # Quick morning alert to see what's down
        0 6 * * * /usr/sbin/tSmoke --q --morning
        # Weekly report on the percent availability of network systems with no detail
        0 8 * * * /usr/sbin/tSmoke --q --weekly --detail=0
