Nrpe with remote command options


I’m running nrpe successfully from my nagios server. I’m wondering if anyone could clear something up…
How do I run a remote command with it’s options…for example

check_nrpe -H -c check_users
Works fine…
check_nrpe -H -c check_disk -x /dev/sda1
gives invalid option…

I can see why because it’s being interpreted as an option to check_nrpe and not the command after the “-c”…I’m sure someone has a quick fix for this…I couldn’t find anything specific when searching…


Define the command on the remote box like
and one for
each definition will contain the proper switches. On the central server you would simply define
heck_nrpe -H -c check_disk_sda1
heck_nrpe -H -c check_disk_sda2


on the central server how would I enter the check_command

check_nrpe -H -c check_load
returns an error when restarting nagios…
I’m assuming it has to be formatted like the others for example

check_command check_ping!100.0,20%!500.0,60%


Ok I got it…
on the Nagios server the check_command should be formatted at so:
check_command check_nrpe!check_load

and it works…
Thanks buddy!!!
