# Sample NRPE Config File
# Written by: Ethan Galstad (nagios@nagios.org)
#
# Last Modified: 2016-05-10
#
# NOTES:
# This is a sample configuration file for the NRPE daemon. It needs to be
# located on the remote host that is running the NRPE daemon, not the host
# from which the check_nrpe client is being executed.
#############################################################################

 

# LOG FACILITY
# The syslog facility that should be used for logging purposes.

log_facility=daemon

 

# LOG FILE
# If a log file is specified in this option, nrpe will write to
# that file instead of using syslog.

#log_file=/var/run/nrpe.log

 

# DEBUGGING OPTION
# This option determines whether or not debugging messages are logged to the
# syslog facility.
# Values: 0=debugging off, 1=debugging on

debug=0

 

# PID FILE
# The name of the file in which the NRPE daemon should write it's process ID
# number. The file is only written if the NRPE daemon is started by the root
# user and is running in standalone mode.

pid_file=/var/run/nrpe/nrpe.pid

 

# PORT NUMBER
# Port number we should wait for connections on.
# NOTE: This must be a non-privileged port (i.e. > 1024).
# NOTE: This option is ignored if NRPE is running under either inetd or xinetd

server_port=5666

 

# SERVER ADDRESS
# Address that nrpe should bind to in case there are more than one interface
# and you do not want nrpe to bind on all interfaces.
# NOTE: This option is ignored if NRPE is running under either inetd or xinetd

#server_address=127.0.0.1

 

# LISTEN QUEUE SIZE
# Listen queue size (backlog) for serving incoming connections.
# You may want to increase this value under high load.

#listen_queue_size=5

 

# NRPE USER
# This determines the effective user that the NRPE daemon should run as.
# You can either supply a username or a UID.
#
# NOTE: This option is ignored if NRPE is running under either inetd or xinetd

nrpe_user=nrpe

 

# NRPE GROUP
# This determines the effective group that the NRPE daemon should run as.
# You can either supply a group name or a GID.
#
# NOTE: This option is ignored if NRPE is running under either inetd or xinetd

nrpe_group=nrpe

 

# ALLOWED HOST ADDRESSES
# This is an optional comma-delimited list of IP address or hostnames
# that are allowed to talk to the NRPE daemon. Network addresses with a bit mask
# (i.e. 192.168.1.0/24) are also supported. Hostname wildcards are not currently
# supported.
#
# Note: The daemon only does rudimentary checking of the client's IP
# address. I would highly recommend adding entries in your /etc/hosts.allow
# file to allow only the specified host to connect to the port
# you are running this daemon on.
#
# NOTE: This option is ignored if NRPE is running under either inetd or xinetd

allowed_hosts=127.0.0.1,::1

 

# COMMAND ARGUMENT PROCESSING
# This option determines whether or not the NRPE daemon will allow clients
# to specify arguments to commands that are executed. This option only works
# if the daemon was configured with the --enable-command-args configure script
# option.
#
# *** ENABLING THIS OPTION IS A SECURITY RISK! ***
# Read the SECURITY file for information on some of the security implications
# of enabling this variable.
#
# Values: 0=do not allow arguments, 1=allow command arguments

dont_blame_nrpe=0

 

# BASH COMMAND SUBSTITUTION
# This option determines whether or not the NRPE daemon will allow clients
# to specify arguments that contain bash command substitutions of the form
# $(...). This option only works if the daemon was configured with both
# the --enable-command-args and --enable-bash-command-substitution configure
# script options.
#
# *** ENABLING THIS OPTION IS A HIGH SECURITY RISK! ***
# Read the SECURITY file for information on some of the security implications
# of enabling this variable.
#
# Values: 0=do not allow bash command substitutions,
# 1=allow bash command substitutions

allow_bash_command_substitution=0

 

# COMMAND PREFIX
# This option allows you to prefix all commands with a user-defined string.
# A space is automatically added between the specified prefix string and the
# command line from the command definition.
#
# *** THIS EXAMPLE MAY POSE A POTENTIAL SECURITY RISK, SO USE WITH CAUTION! ***
# Usage scenario:
# Execute restricted commmands using sudo. For this to work, you need to add
# the nagios user to your /etc/sudoers. An example entry for allowing
# execution of the plugins from might be:
#
# nagios ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/
#
# This lets the nagios user run all commands in that directory (and only them)
# without asking for a password. If you do this, make sure you don't give
# random users write access to that directory or its contents!

# command_prefix=/usr/bin/sudo

 

# COMMAND TIMEOUT
# This specifies the maximum number of seconds that the NRPE daemon will
# allow plugins to finish executing before killing them off.

command_timeout=60

 

# CONNECTION TIMEOUT
# This specifies the maximum number of seconds that the NRPE daemon will
# wait for a connection to be established before exiting. This is sometimes
# seen where a network problem stops the SSL being established even though
# all network sessions are connected. This causes the nrpe daemons to
# accumulate, eating system resources. Do not set this too low.

connection_timeout=300

 

# WEAK RANDOM SEED OPTION
# This directive allows you to use SSL even if your system does not have
# a /dev/random or /dev/urandom (on purpose or because the necessary patches
# were not applied). The random number generator will be seeded from a file
# which is either a file pointed to by the environment valiable $RANDFILE
# or $HOME/.rnd. If neither exists, the pseudo random number generator will
# be initialized and a warning will be issued.
# Values: 0=only seed from /dev/[u]random, 1=also seed from weak randomness

#allow_weak_random_seed=1

 

# SSL/TLS OPTIONS
# These directives allow you to specify how to use SSL/TLS.

# SSL VERSION
# This can be any of: SSLv2 (only use SSLv2), SSLv2+ (use any version),
# SSLv3 (only use SSLv3), SSLv3+ (use SSLv3 or above), TLSv1 (only use
# TLSv1), TLSv1+ (use TLSv1 or above), TLSv1.1 (only use TLSv1.1),
# TLSv1.1+ (use TLSv1.1 or above), TLSv1.2 (only use TLSv1.2),
# TLSv1.2+ (use TLSv1.2 or above)
# If an "or above" version is used, the best will be negotiated. So if both
# ends are able to do TLSv1.2 and use specify SSLv2, you will get TLSv1.2.
# If you are using openssl 1.1.0 or above, the SSLv2 options are not available.

#ssl_version=SSLv2+

# SSL USE ADH
# This is for backward compatibility and is DEPRECATED. Set to 1 to enable
# ADH or 2 to require ADH. 1 is currently the default but will be changed
# in a later version.

#ssl_use_adh=1

# SSL CIPHER LIST
# This lists which ciphers can be used. For backward compatibility, this
# defaults to 'ssl_cipher_list=ALL:!MD5:@STRENGTH' in this version but
# will be changed to something like the example below in a later version of NRPE.

#ssl_cipher_list=ALL:!MD5:@STRENGTH
#ssl_cipher_list=ALL:!aNULL:!eNULL:!SSLv2:!LOW:!EXP:!RC4:!MD5:@STRENGTH

# SSL Certificate and Private Key Files

#ssl_cacert_file=/etc/ssl/servercerts/ca-cert.pem
#ssl_cert_file=/etc/ssl/servercerts/nagios-cert.pem
#ssl_privatekey_file=/etc/ssl/servercerts/nagios-key.pem

# SSL USE CLIENT CERTS
# This options determines client certificate usage.
# Values: 0 = Don't ask for or require client certificates (default)
# 1 = Ask for client certificates
# 2 = Require client certificates

#ssl_client_certs=0

# SSL LOGGING
# This option determines which SSL messages are send to syslog. OR values
# together to specify multiple options.

# Values: 0x00 (0) = No additional logging (default)
# 0x01 (1) = Log startup SSL/TLS parameters
# 0x02 (2) = Log remote IP address
# 0x04 (4) = Log SSL/TLS version of connections
# 0x08 (8) = Log which cipher is being used for the connection
# 0x10 (16) = Log if client has a certificate
# 0x20 (32) = Log details of client's certificate if it has one
# -1 or 0xff or 0x2f = All of the above

#ssl_logging=0x00

 

# NASTY METACHARACTERS
# This option allows you to override the list of characters that cannot
# be passed to the NRPE daemon.

# nasty_metachars="|`&><'\\[]{};\r\n"

 

# INCLUDE CONFIG FILE
# This directive allows you to include definitions from an external config file.

#include=<somefile.cfg>

 

# INCLUDE CONFIG DIRECTORY
# This directive allows you to include definitions from config files (with a
# .cfg extension) in one or more directories (with recursion).

include_dir=/etc/nrpe.d/

 

# COMMAND DEFINITIONS
# Command definitions that this daemon will run. Definitions
# are in the following format:
#
# command[<command_name>]=<command_line>
#
# When the daemon receives a request to return the results of <command_name>
# it will execute the command specified by the <command_line> argument.
#
# Unlike Nagios, the command line cannot contain macros - it must be
# typed exactly as it should be executed.
#
# Note: Any plugins that are used in the command lines must reside
# on the machine that this daemon is running on! The examples below
# assume that you have plugins installed in a /usr/local/nagios/libexec
# directory. Also note that you will have to modify the definitions below
# to match the argument format the plugins expect. Remember, these are
# examples only!

 

# The following examples use hardcoded command arguments...

command[check_users]=/usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/check_users -w 5 -c 10
command[check_load]=/usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/check_load -r -w .15,.10,.05 -c .30,.25,.20
command[check_hda1]=/usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/check_disk -w 20% -c 10% -p /dev/hda1
command[check_zombie_procs]=/usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/check_procs -w 5 -c 10 -s Z
command[check_total_procs]=/usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/check_procs -w 150 -c 200

 

# The following examples allow user-supplied arguments and can
# only be used if the NRPE daemon was compiled with support for
# command arguments *AND* the dont_blame_nrpe directive in this
# config file is set to '1'. This poses a potential security risk, so
# make sure you read the SECURITY file before doing this.

#command[check_users]=/usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/check_users -w $ARG1$ -c $ARG2$
#command[check_load]=/usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/check_load -w $ARG1$ -c $ARG2$
#command[check_disk]=/usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/check_disk -w $ARG1$ -c $ARG2$ -p $ARG3$
#command[check_procs]=/usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/check_procs -w $ARG1$ -c $ARG2$ -s $ARG3$
