Smokeping::matchers::Median - Find persistant changes in latency
The idea behind this matcher is to find sustained changes in latency.
The median matcher takes a number of past median latencies. It splits the latencies into
two groups (old and new) and again finds the median for each groups. If the
difference between the two medians is bigger than a certain value, it will
give a match.
Call the matcher with the following sequence:
type = matcher
pattern = Median(old=>x,new=>y,diff=>z)
This will create a matcher which consumes x+y latency-datapoints, builds the
two medians and the matches if the difference between the median latency is
larger than z seconds.
