Thread: NRPE

    NRPE

    I'm having problems getting NRPE working with arguments

    I downloaded and setup everything and basic things work:

    [tt][shinken@server-monitor-1 plugins]$ ./check_nrpe -H server-linux -c check_users
    USERS OK - 2 users currently logged in |users=2;5;10;0
    [/tt]

    But if I try to feed any parameters, it fails:

    [tt]
    [shinken@server-monitor-1 plugins]$ ./check_nrpe -H server-linux -c check_users -a 1
    CHECK_NRPE: Received 0 bytes from daemon. Check the remote server logs for error messages.
    [/tt]

    To make matters worse, check_disk is just acting weird but it may be based on the parameter problem:

    [tt]
    [shinken@server-monitor-1 plugins]$ ./check_nrpe -H server-linux -c check_disk
    NRPE: Command 'check_disk' not defined
    [shinken@server-monitor-1 plugins]$
    [/tt]

    If I feed it parameters I get the same error

    [tt]
    [shinken@server-monitor-1 plugins]$ ./check_nrpe -H server-linux.dazsi.net -c check_disk -a -w 10 -c 5 /
    CHECK_NRPE: Received 0 bytes from daemon. Check the remote server logs for error messages.
    [/tt]

    These commands are valid on the remote host (although check_users seems to need parameters, when used remotely it does not? ??? )

    [tt]
    [shinken@server-linux libexec]$ ./check_disk -w 10 -c 5 /
    DISK OK - free space: / 4960 MB (7% inode=94%);| /=57884MB;66197;66202;0;66207
    [shinken@server-linux libexec]$ ./check_users


    Usage:
    check_users -w <users> -c <users>
    [shinken@server-linux libexec]$ ./check_users 1
    USERS CRITICAL - 2 users currently logged in |users=2;1;-1;0

    [/tt]

    I really need to be able to monitor disk space remotely.

    What am I doing wrong? :-[

    Re: NRPE

    Did you define the command on the server? like command[check_users]=/usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_users -w 5 -c 10
    You have to customize the remote host configuration i think...

    Ah! I need to edit the nrpe.cfg file :-[

    Thanks! I'll fiddle with that.

    Re: NRPE

    Yes, and if you need arguments, you will need to enable in nrpe.cfg:
    dont_blame_nrpe=1

    Without it, it will not take arguments.
