Background

This ZenPack wraps the "check_nrpe" Nagios plugin such that it is treated as a device component, using standard GUI component management methods.

The component properties specify the remote command plugin to be called. The "arglist" is a newline-delimited list of arguments to be passed to the remote NRPE daemon (assuming it is configured properly to receive them).
