Usage Scenario

JNRPE deployment.

You will want to use JNRPE when at least one of this events occurs:

  • You need to monitor resources that can’t be reached remotely
  • You need to monitor a non windows/linux machine
  • You need to monitor many different machines with different operating systems and you want to use the same software/installation/configuration on every machine
  • You need to run a custom check that you developed with Java and you don’t want a JVM to be started on each check
  • You don’t want to bother compiling software from source to get it running on your machine

In all this cases, JNRPE can lend you an hand.
