This script provides access to commands declared in nrpe to check_by_ssh. Please set the nrpeconf variable to the right value. You must generate a ssh key on the nagios server, copy it in .ssh/authorized_keys in nagios (or nrpe) user home directory on distant server, then add this at the begining of the line juste before the key:

no-pty,no-port-forwarding,command="/usr/local/bin/check_by_ssh_wrapper $SSH_ORIGINAL_COMMAND"

You can then use $USER1$/check_by_ssh -H -l nagios -C 'check_cmd [args]'

Freely inspired by nagios_ssh_framework. Can be used when nrpe port can't be accessed or check_command returns to many text for nrpe and you want to keep facilities of nrpe config files.

See my blog
