|Title:||What needs to be installed on a remote host in order to check it using NRPE?|
|Submitted By:||Ethan Galstad |
User wants to know what components need to be installed on a remote server in order for checks to be made of that system.
You need to have all of the following components installed/running on a remote system in order to check it using the check_nrpe plugin from your monitoring host(s):
- The NRPE daemon must be installed and must be running either as a daemon or under inetd/xinetd.
- Plugins must be installed on the remote server in order for the NRPE daemon to check services on that server.
