Reserved space for root #2

In ext3, some disk space are reserved for root user.
If you check your free space, the plugin return 5% of free space, but just usuable for the root user.
For other user, the disk is already full.

How can i change your plugin to return free space for normal user?

Best regards,



Hi Vincent,

Currently, I just return the free space information given by the SNMP protocol.
But to solve this issue, I will plan to add a command line option to specify a percentage of space to add.
for instance "check_snmp_disk -R 5 ..."

The code change should be small, and I planned to work a little bit to issue a new release of the plugins to address a few issues I have been notified.
