Smokeping::matchers::ExpLoss - exponential weighting matcher for packet loss
with RMON-like thresholds
Match against exponential weighted average of last samples, thus new values
are more valuable as old ones. Two thresholds - rising and falling - produce
hysteresis loop like in RMON alert subsystem. If the average reaches the
rising threshold, matcher go to the match state and hold It until the
average drops under the falling threshold.
Call the matcher with the following sequence:
type = matcher
pattern = CheckLoss(hist => <hist>, rising=><rising> \
[,falling => <falling>] [,skip=><stat>] [,fast=><fast>])
hist - number of samples to weight against; weight will be disposed with
exponetial decreasing manner from newest to oldest, so that the
oldest sample would have 1% significance;
rising - rising threshold for packet loss, 0-100%
falling - falling threshold for packet loss, default is <rising>
skip - skip <skip> number of samples after startup before fire alerts.
fast - use <fast> samples for fast transition: if the values of last <fast>
samples more then <rising> - take match state, if less then
<falling> - take no match state.
If the actual history is less then <hist> value then this value is taken
as the actual history.
