Nagios Remote Plugin Executor (NRPE) is used to execute checks on remote computers.

This is documented on many sites across the internet, this is just another one.

There are two parts to NPRE:
  1. The check_nrpe plugin installed on the Nagios Core server
    • This connects to remote computers and issues the check request
  2. The NRPE Listener / Agent / Client
    • This listens for remote requests, executes the requested check and then returns the result
    • This can be the NRPE Agent / Client installed from Source on Unix/Linux computers
    • NSClient++ Installed on Windows computers
