Description follows. Submitted net/nrpe2 since the "new" nrpe is incompatible
with version one. Both can be installed in parallel but share the same
nrpe is used to execute Nagios plugins on remote hosts and report the results
to the main Nagios server. From the Nagios homepage:
Allows you to execute "local" plugins (like check_disk, check_procs, etc.) on
remote hosts. The check_nrpe plugin is called from Nagios and actually makes
the plugin requests to the remote host. Requires that nrpe be running on the
remote host (either as a standalone daemon or as a service under inetd).
nrpe2 is incompatible with nrpe version 1, if you are running this version
see net/nrpe. Both ports can be installed in parallel but share the same
configuration file by default. This is easily changed in the nrpe startup
Generated with FreeBSD Port Tools 0.50
I'll take it.
Sergei, are you still interested in pursuing this one?
Over to volunteer. ;)
