Nope, that is why that column exists. For example, it says "last 
probe...1 hour ago" or "last probe...renewed" if it happened during the 
last hourly run. :)

The gentoo-portage mirrors get checked during every hourly run because 
the freshness interval is smaller (30 minutes).

It isn't a perfect tool, but it does give users/dev/mirror-admins a 
quick graphical view of the state of the mirrors which we think is worth
