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
exponetial decreasing manner from newest to oldest, so that
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"
fast - use <fast> samples for fast transition: if the values of
samples more then <rising> - take "match" state, if less
<falling> - take "no match" state.
If the actual history is less then <hist> value then this value is
as the actual history.
