[smokeping-users] curl probe with alerts

Recently I've had a requirement to monitor an internal web server as it
recently had a crash, but the server itself was still up. I've added the
curl probe and configured the monitoring of the website page and it
works fine on the graph side of things. However, I can't get alerts to
work with it and I'm not sure what sort of alert configuration is
required by this from the documentation.
Have tried playing around with an Alert Matcher of "CheckLatency"
however I don't understand the correct syntax required for pattern e.g.
in Alerts I added something like this:
type = matcher
edgetrigger = yes
pattern = ????
comment = web page is not responding
Is this what I need to do or am I completely off track here? I also did
a search on this mailing list's archive and also noticed a few people
asking the same question, but no answers or solutions.
Any help would be much appreciated.
