nrpe_vms is an OpenVMS version of the nrpe (Nagios Remote Plugin Executor) daemon for unix-like operation systems. It provides methods to execute Nagios service checks on an OpenVMS system and report the results back to your Nagios host
Reviewed the code and found on the net some additional fixes for the source code and the TCPIP Service setup. We just installed it on an Itanium running OpenVMS 8.4, tcpip 5.7 eco3. There are basic scripts that came with the source. These needed to be reviewed and then fixed. The CPU calculation was wrong. It was adding the "idle" to the usage. Will be creating additional scripts for monitoring. These need to provide output back to the nagios server with keywords and exit severity for alerts to trigger. ----- I will be updating this review after I email the dev on the changes and add more scripts.
