This document describes how to install and configure NRPE from source for use with Nagios XI. The linux-nrpe-agent that ships with Nagios XI is only supported on a few select distributions (RHEL and CentOS). As most monitoring environments consist of many different distributions, you will find that you will need to compile nrpe and its associated plugins.

This document is intended for Nagios XI administrators who are new to NRPE or Nagios XI, and have to use a source-based install method of NRPE, usually due to unsupported Linux distributions or security restrictions in corporate build environments.
