I am currently testing a check for a customer to monitor a Nutanix clusters.
The script has a check for disks, which also includes the I/O bandwidth.
As the default thresholds are way too low I changed them to around 70 MB warn and 100 MB crit (that’s megabyte).
I converted my new threshold values like this
- 70 megabyte*8 = 560 megabit → 560 megabit * 1000 = 560000 kilobit
- 100 megabyte*8 = 560 megabit → 560 megabit * 1000 = 560000 kilobit
The check reports its values in kbps like this:
Icinga Web 2 not converts it like this.
Imo this is not correct as Icinga, I don’t know why, thinks the values are in SI notation and are all bytes instead of bits.
Though the system is running Icinga Web 2 v2.7.3 I don’t think it matters, as the releases since then all had nothing with “unit” in their changelog.
I found several issues about unit conversion, but they are all closed or merged.
Question is: Am I wrong about the coversion or is the web interface wrong :)?
