I just downloaded the Nagiosxi demo. I am trying to monitor a Linux disk using snmp. I am monitoring a few drive that report correctly. however I have one disk that is 10TB. the monitor reports that I am using 5TB out of 2TB, or %253.

check_xi_service_snmp_linux_storage! --login=***** --passwd=***** --privpass=***** --protocols=md5,des -m "^/sasdata$" -w 80 -c 95 -f

/sasdata: 253%used(5308729MB/2096396MB) (>95%) : CRITICAL
