Hi and thanks for a great plugin. I ran into an issue because I had renamed the file from check_proc_mem.sh to just check_proc_mem as I like them w/ no file extension since that is how they commonly are in the plugin directory. This caused an issue in the grep -v portion. I added some things to accommodate this changes, here is the modified script that will work just in case someone else happens to rename it:

#!/bin/bash -e
