    Description

      The item vfs.file.contents is limited to 64K and so as the text field for MySQL engine.

      Sometimes it's required to pick up bigger content from /proc/diskstats to pass this information to the preprocessor for example in "Template Module Linux block devices by Zabbix agent active"

      The limitation is currently installed at the agent side. Please:

      1) Increase the limit of item key 'vfs.file.contents' or 

      2) Allow an override or

      3) Invent a different agent key 

      Currently to workaround issue must alter template "Template Module Linux block devices by Zabbix agent active" and use:

      system.run["cat /proc/diskstats"]

      which is not suitable for some environments.
