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.
