[Pkg-nagios-devel] Bug#985294: check_memory plugin not working when default locale is not English

Package: monitoring-plugins-contrib
Version: 31.20210225
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream patch

Dear Maintainer,

The check_memory plugin doesn't work since upgrading to bullseye because 
it appears the procps package has adopted some new translations for 
/usr/bin/free but the plugin expects English output. Setting LANG=C as 
part of the command avoids the parsing error.

A merge request has been submitted to Salsa at this URL:

Thank you!
