[Xymon] Memory Monitor Solaris 10 Client

Does munin show used memory or free?  I'm fairly certain Xymon is showing used.  I have Nagios server in one of my environments and it shows resources by how much if free...which can be downright confusing when you get an alert that shows 5% and think it's alerting as used.

Dear Xymon-Team,

we have mentioned a problem with our memory monitors for solaris
clients. the data shown on the page of every monitor for solaris
are the mirrored like it is - let me explain.
We have installed munin and xymon on a solaris 10 machine, so that we
can compare the data from both tools.
If munin and the system says the current memory used is 48% --> xymon
shows 52%.
If munin and the system shows that 15% are currently used - xymon shows
85%... and so on.
We currently use Xymon server 4.3.10 and solaris client 4.3.7.

Do you have any idea, what we can do, is it a bug - maybe fixed in newer
client versions, or do we have to configure
something for the correct data?
