Previously, the snmpd daemon strictly implemented RFC 2780. However, this specification no longer scales well with modern big storage devices with small allocation units, and consequently, snmpd reported a wrong value of the HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrStorageSize object when working with a large file system (larger than 16TB), because the accurate value would not fit into Integer32 as specified in the RFC. To address this issue, this update adds a new option to the /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf configuration file, realStorageUnits. By changing the value of this option to 0, users can now enable recalculating all values in hrStorageTable to ensure that the multiplication of hrStorageSize and hrStorageAllocationUnits always produces an accurate device size. On the other hand, the values of hrStorageAllocationUnits are artificial and do not represent the real size of the allocation unit on the storage device.
