What is NRPE Command Status?

Nagios is an open-source software created in 1996 and released under the GPL v2 license. In typical Nagios environments, an NRPE (Nagios Remote Plugin Executor) addon is deployed to allow the execution of Nagios plugin commands on a remote Linux or Unix machine.

Each check performed by the NRPE generates metrics along with an alarm status. This NRPE Command Status can be sent to ServicePilot and used to monitor the health and performance of the remote machine, helping to ensure optimal operation and prevent potential issues.

How to monitor NRPE Command Status?

ServicePilot makes it easy to monitor status of an NRPE Command by simply setting the target machine with Nagios and its plugins. A corresponding resource of the server-nrpe-command-status package then needs to be added via the ServicePilot web interface for any NRPE command that needs to have its status monitored.

The NRPE Command Status package will support remote NRPE with or without SSL encryption. At the moment only unencrypted connections are supported.

How to install a nrpe-command-status resource?

  1. Use your ServicePilot OnPremise installation or a SaaS account.
  2. Add a new nrpe-command-status resource via the web interface (/prmviews or /prmresources) or via API (/prmpackages page), the default ServicePilot agent or another agent will be provisioned automatically.

Details of the nrpe-command-status package are located in the /prmpackages page of the software.
