This does not work for me.

The output of "df -h":
/dev/mapper/vg0-home                 215G    183G   22G   90% /home

Monit says with the line given above:
space usage 47829432 blocks matches resource limit [space usage>6553589

I read the documentation but I thought this monitors the space used
("space usage") and not the free space. That also is what the monit
alert message says. I need to configure a fixed amount of free space,
regardless how big the file system is.

(It would be great if one could monitor both: Some spool/temp partition
should propably be alerted when it gets over a fixed amount of used space.)
