NAME

nrpe - Nagios Remote Plugin Executor - Server  

SYNOPSIS

nagios-nrpe -c <config_file> <mode>  

DESCRIPTION

The purpose of this addon is to allow you to execute Nagios plugins on a remote host in as transparent a manner as possible.

This program runs as a background process on the remote host and processes command execution requests from the check_nrpe plugin on the Nagios host.  

OPTIONS

<config_file> = Name of config file to use
<mode> = One of the following two operating modes:
-i
= Run as a service under inetd or xinetd
-d
= Run as a standalone daemon

Notes: This program is designed to process requests from the check_nrpe plugin on the host(s) running Nagios. It can run as a service under inetd or xinetd (read the docs for info on this), or as a standalone daemon. Once a request is received from an authorized host, NRPE will execute the command/plugin (as defined in the config file) and return the plugin output and return code to the check_nrpe plugin.
