check-ram megabytes setting not working


#1

From the documentation https://github.com/sensu-plugins/sensu-plugins-memory-checks

  • /opt/sensu/embedded/bin/check-memory.rb -w 2500 -c 3000 - Values in Megabytes
    My config.json has

“command”: “check-memory.sh -w 50000000 -c 100000000”

top reports

KiB Mem: 1014632 total, 905872 used, 108760 free, 42176 buffers

uchiwa reports

Mem Critical free system memory 475Mb

Questions

  • I am just not able to get the check-memory to green. The current system is at optimal memory usage. I need to set a -w just above, so I tried -w 500 and did not work. Thats why I kept increasing the 0’s. But no help.

  • uchiwa reprots free memory, shouldn’t it report “used memory” since the -w is set to the “max used memory”, confusing ?


#2

When I say “optimal memory usage”. I mean that this is my benchmark memory usage (reported by top).
