Package: nagios-nrpe-server
Version: 3.2.1-2
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

Default configuration of check_load limits are unnecessarily low.
Default values make alerts in common production server load.

Default configuration:
command[check_load]=/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_load -r -w .15,.10,.05 -c .30,.25,.20

Default proposal:
command[check_load]=/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_load -r -w 15,10,05 -c 30,25,20

I mean this is mistype error. In old versions of package was values as
in proposal (for examle: nagios-nrpe-server-3.0.1).

Same error is in testing and unstable versions of package: nagios-nrpe-server_3.0.3

    Best regards  Pavel Polacek
