As stated in a topic in the Nagios forums https://support.nagios.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=57960 NRPE is to be deprecated and “replaced” with NCPA.
I now have a question regarding pnp4nagios in this context.
With NRPE the check command mostly looked like this:
check_command check_nrpe!check_network!-i enp2s0f0
and then we have the following in /etc/pnp4nagios/check_commands/check_nrpe.cfg:
# # Adapt the Template if check_command should not be the PNP Template # # check_command check_nrpe!check_network # ________0__________| | # ________1________________________| # # User ARG1 CUSTOM_TEMPLATE = 1
(or some variant thereof) which then control which pnp4nagios template get used.
In our case it would be:
How can we achieve the same thing using NCPA where the same check command would look something like this:
check_command check_ncpa!-M interface/enp2s0f0
