Has anyone ever installed and ran the Nagios NRPE client on a VIO Server? Are there any things to be careful with when doing so?
I wouldn't be allowing ad-hoc parameters, and my intention would be to create a user for nrpe so that it wasn't running as root.
Why poll the data every 15 or 30 seconds. Tune your server in such a way you do not have to pull the data every 15 to 30 seconds. Poll the data at 1 minute or 5 minutes. Proper server tuning you will get result you need. Is you VIOS has enough resource to respond.
I was able to get NRPE working without a problem. Polling every 1 minute as with the rest of the system's being monitored.
is it possible to descripe how you did this? Is there a special way how to create a user and group and set up a special environment?
Which commands do you use to check the VIOS? ioscli? So to check error report, do you use errlog or errpt?
