This needs to be installed on the machine that is doing the monitoring (the machine that the nagios package is installed on). It is used by nagios to make calls to the client machines (the machines being monitored). Clients need to have nagios-nrpe package installed. They don't need nagios or this package installed.

Server = the monitoring machine (req: nagios + nagios-nrpe-plugin)
Client = the remote machine being monitored (req: nagios-nrpe + monitoring-plugins)

What is this? Is it the server side (what you install on the host you want to monitor) or the client side (what you install on your nagios server that does the monitoring)?

Ugh nevermind me, I'm slow. I thought this was run on the client. I realize now nagios-nrpe is run on the client. I think the dependency makes sense.

Sorry for the noise.

Why does the nrpe plugin depend on nagios?

I agree... It's rare that it would be used without Nagios, but at a code/compilation level, there's no dependence between the 2...
