Close, but no cigar. :)

AFAICT it's as documented.  This passes muster for me:

type = matcher
edgetrigger = yes
pattern = CheckLatency(l=>10,x=>3)
comment = TestingLatencyCheck

I don't know if it actually does anything.

Check in ../Smokeping.pm for the syntax check (search for the string
'pattern entry') and in .../Smokeping/matchers/CheckLatency.pm for
the installation of the matcher.  Some scary comments near the top
in my version. :)
