Nagios NRPE Server Config

GitHub version Build Status

An Ansible role to handle the installation and rollout of the Nagios NRPE Daemon.

I've only selected certain platforms that I know this 100% works on, but it should work on any platform that NRPE can be installed on.

Currently supports:

  • Debian
    • Squeeze
    • Wheezy
  • Ubuntu
    • Raring
    • Saucy
    • Trusty
  • RedHat
    • At least 6 onwards
  • Arch Linux
    • All
  • Solaris
    • At least 11.1

Requirements

RedHat based OS's must have the EPEL repo.

Role Information

This role gives you the ability to deploy plugins on a global and per-server basis. This can be done by putting plugins into files/plugins/global or by creating a folder in files/plugins/ that is the servers FQDN.

You can find out your servers FQDN by running the Ansible Setup module.

Role Variables

  • nagios_nrpe_server_bind_address: 127.0.0.1
  • nagios_nrpe_server_port: 5666
