i am sorry i mixed up 2 scenarios. One is sth like traps the other is 
regular passive check. I also mixed up you and the original poster. But 
the point i wanted to make is that if there is any possibility (and i 
see that with smart in contrast to snmp-traps) one should try to go for 
regular checks with freshness checking. Otherwise you might end up with 
checks which actually don't work at all and therefore are no use. And 
also this way of doing checks eliminates the need for the original 
feature request.
