Just a script to facilitate restarts of nrpe and automatically start the nrpe daemon at different run levels.
+++ NRPE init script
Is this provided with NRPE somewhere? I don't know. It seems weird that it isn't. Anyways, I modified my apache init script to start NRPE. Maybe it is useful to you as well

++++ Installation
This is a very standard procedure. Add 'nrpe' to '/etc/init.d/' or wherever your init scripts go. Then add nrpe to the run levels you want it to start by creating symlinks or for Red Hat type distributions

/sbin/chkconfig --add nrpe
/sbin/chkconfig --list nrpe

It will automatically start in run levels 3 and 5 by default.

thanks for this.
I needed to modify it to be correct for install from repo, you assumed source install in the script. Noticed on RHEL 5.11, rpm from EPEL also didn't have init script :(

Also a couple variable were mixed up. fixed it up and it works.
