Package: nagios-plugins-contrib
Version: 11.20140704
Severity: normal


The plugin check_memory doesn't seems to be working anymore :

root at machine:~# /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_memory -vvv
[extra-opts] check_memory -vvv
Running: '/usr/bin/free -b'
Output from /usr/bin/free:
                total        used        free      shared  buff/cache   available
  Mem:     8383860736   825520128  2484445184    17211392  5073895424  7273594880
  Swap:   16378753024           0 16378753024
MEMORY CRITICAL - Unable to interpret /usr/bin/free output

Maybe it's because of recent changes in the free output, so the plugin cannot parse it anymore ?

If you need more information to investigate, please let me know.
