Overview

This module installs and manages the NRPE server.

Module Description

This module differs from most existing NRPE module on the following points:

  • commands are defined through a simple hash, not through resources;
  • plugins are not managed;
  • nagios/shinken/any monitoring system is not managed.

Setup

What nrpe affects

  • nrpe package and service
  • /etc/nagios/nrpe.cfg

Usage

This module can be included, required, contained, or defined. However, to be useful, you should define it, as that allows you to specify extra/custom commands and set the allowed hosts.

Reference

Limitations

The module has been tested/used in production with Puppet 3.x.

On the OS side, the module currently only works on Debian-family OSes, but we'd love to get a patch to add support for more families/operating systems.

Development

Development is happening on github, and we welcome pull requests!
