About NRPE with Nagios:

NRPE allows you to remotely execute Nagios plugins on other Linux/Unix machines. This allows you to monitor remote machine metrics (disk usage, CPU load, etc.). NRPE can also communicate with some of the Windows agent addons, so you can execute scripts and check metrics on remote Windows machines as well.

Installation instructions:

Edit file /etc/sudoers and add the following;

nrpe ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/
nagios ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/

Edit file /etc/nagios/nrpe.cfg and add the following;

command[check_backup]=/usr/bin/sudo /usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/

Copy to /usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/ and give this script 777 or just execute 🙂

And the Final step is to define service/define command to specific servers in Nagios server.
