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.
