NRPE and SSH


#1

Ok, I have NRPE on local servers, works ok, still getting over little issues.

NOW for the problem. I need to monitor hosts that we connect to via SSH over VPN tunnel.

NRPE won’t work “directly” over SSH will it?

Am I correct in saying that you need to use the check_by_ssh command?

If I use the check_by_ssh command, how do I execute the nagios plugin on the other side? Like check_latestfile.

And lastly, how would I add it into my Nagios configuration?


#2

./check_by_ssh --help
returns most of the info you ask for.
