Nagios reporting incorrect memory information

Postby ctwhyexit » Wed Nov 08, 2017 12:47 pm

Server -
Nagios Core 4.2.4 running on Amazon Linux

Client -
Windows 2016 Server
NSCP v0.4.1.7
Memory - 16GB

However on the Nagios dashboard, this is what we see,
Memory usage: total:19327.78 MB - used: 3473.16 MB (18%) - free: 15854.62 MB (82%)

We are wondering how we can resolve this discrepancy.

I believe that the NSCP memory check shows Physical + Swap (pagefile) check the size of your page file to confirm.

Thanks! It looks like it is.
The swap file is 2944 MB and the Memory on the system is 16 GB which totals to what Nagios is reporting now. Any way to force Nagios to report RAM only?
