What does KiB and MiB mean?

1 KiB (Kibibyte) is actually what most people incorrectly call a kilobyte. It is 1024 bytes; so, in most cases SysOrb will do exactly what you expect - we just use the correct unit designation.

The reason we are explicit about kibi (prefix for 1024) versus kilo (prefix for 1000), is, that you can select kilo if that is what you want. You can, in the check configuration, configure whether you want binary (kibi) or decimal (kilo) designations.
