SmokePing issue - "No Sections Are Allowed" Error

Hi Guys,

LibreNMS details on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:

Component Version
LibreNMS 1.59-6-g4246316
DB Schema 2019_12_01_165514_add_indexes_to_mpls_lsp_paths_table (152)
PHP 7.2.26-1+ubuntu16.04.1+deb.sury.org+1
MySQL 10.0.38-MariaDB-0ubuntu0.16.04.1
RRDTool 1.5.5
SNMP NET-SNMP 5.7.3

I have followed the Doc on integrating smokePing into my LibreNMS server.
However, i’m getting this error both in the shell and GUI:

 systemctl status smokeping

Please see screen shot below:

LibreNMS is working fine and graphing as usual.

Below is my /etc/smokeping/librenms.conf:

>cat librenms.conf

+ librenms

menu = Top
title = Network Latency Grapher

+ appliance
menu = appliance
title = appliance
++ node01-ipmi_MYDOMAIN
menu = node01-ipmi.MYDOMAIN
title = node01-ipmi.MYDOMAIN
host = node01-ipmi.MYDOMAIN

++ 10_xx_xx_xx
menu = 10.xx.xx.xx
title = 10.xx.xx.xx
host = 10.xx.xx.xx

+ environment
menu = environment
title = environment
++ 192_xx_xx_173
menu = 192.xx.xx.173
title = 192.xx.xx.173
host = 192.xx.xx.173
