I see people trying to use NCPA to call NRPE plugins

As NRPE is deprecated, is it wise to use them with NCPA ?
Are there any plans to port and support plugins from NRPE to NCPA ?

I'm not sure what you mean by NRPE plugins. Are you referring to the nagios-plugins suite?

I don't think there's any plans to deprecate the nagios-plugins suite. You can run them as external plugins in NCPA just fine:

Which is a good thing because it's unlikely that NCPA will cover every possible monitoring need out-of-the-box.

Thanks.
That is the answer I was hoping for,

I can already see that some tinkering will be necessary.
As an example, with CentOS/RHEL, an example plugin nagios-plugins-users installs to /usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/check_users

I will need to try symlinking it to the NCPA plugins location.
