Several Memory check plugins have been unified with respect to their service description, which is now simply "Memory" or "Memory $ITEM$".

In order to use these new service descriptions you have to enable them below {Global settings}, {Use new service descriptions}. Renaming of existing services has many implications - including existing rules, performance data and availability history - these renamings are disabled per default for existing installations. Here you can switch to the new descriptions for selected check types.

Renaming the services will mean you loose all historic data. If you want to rename the services but keep the recorded metrics, you have to rename the RRD files in ~/var/pnp4nagios/perfdata/$HOST$ or ~/var/check_mk/rrd/$HOST$ according to the service name change.
