NRPEClient#

NRPE client can be used both from command line and from queries to check remote systes via NRPE as well as configure the NRPE server

List of commands#

A list of all available queries (check commands)

Command Description
check_nrpe Request remote information via NRPE.
exec_nrpe Execute remote script via NRPE. (Most likely you want nrpe_query).
nrpe_forward Forward the request as-is to remote host via NRPE.
nrpe_query Request remote information via NRPE.
submit_nrpe Submit information to remote host via NRPE. (Most likely you want nrpe_query).
