Is it correct to use 1024 for linux filesystems?

Hi All,

When I started working on disk rules, I thought of creating two rules by copying the original rule 'Disk Free Space' as file systems vary in both Operating Systems.

Windows - 1 KB (should actually display as KiB) is 1024 Bytes.

Linux - 1 KB (displayed correct) is 1000 Bytes.

If what I think is correct then the condition in the snip should be changed to 1000 for Linux boxes and should remain untouched for Windows boxes.

Reason why I am asking is 'cuz in real-time scenarios no system engineer should get call in the middle of night for a margin threshold miscalculation from the monitoring team.

Please provide your thoughts.

Thank You
