LINSTOR requires a UTF8-capable terminal for correct display. The client 
may have an option to switch to ASCII only - I don't remember, as I 
never use it.
drbdtop and drbdmon also have certain terminal requirements (e.g. for 
ANSI escape sequences), both use Unicode, drbdmon has an --ascii option 
to avoid the Unicode.

The LINSTOR server modules (Satellite/Controller) also assume a terminal 
width of 120 characters if run interactively or if using the debug 
console. It will work with less, but any table-like output or section 
separators etc. may not look very nice.
