[Nagiosplug-devel] Suggestion

Suggestion for plugin improvements:

Add a section on the --help output that provides an explicit description of
the performance information.

For instance:

check_disk -k -w20% -c10% -p /local

produces this output:
DISK WARNING - free space: /local 3964552 kB (17% inode=98%);|

I use rrdtool to track the output of our Nagios checks, but I don't know
how the numbers above relate to the partition below:

[nagios at USUS007]/usr/local/nagios/libexec$ df -v /local
Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/cciss/c0d0p8     24106456  18917512   3964392  83% /local

I see the 17%, 18917352kB, and 24106456; but where does 19285164;21695810;0
come in?  It would be helpful if this was described clearly.  I'm sure that
you include it because it has value, but I can only guess right now.

Thanks for your valuable work.
