I'm assuming check_ps.sh was written to run as a shell script on UNIX/Linux and relies on the command "ps". As such it would not run natively on Windows because there is no "ps" command. What you'd need to do is find the Windows equivalent to check memory by process (assuming there is one) then create a batch file or vb script that does the check you want. You could then add that to your NSC.ini for checking from Nagios master.

It appears a likely command for getting memory information for a process would be "tasklist".

This site has a list of key commands for XP that may/may not work on other versions of Windows:

I didn't find a prewritten script. I did provide with the link to the command that will give you memory by process so you can develop your own.

Good find. For the thread what you linked was a discussion so I'm posting the link to the plugin instead:

https://www.itefix.no/i2/check_winprocess

For adding to NSC.ini you might want to have a look at this thread which is talking about a different plugin but gives full NSC.ini examples:
https://www.itefix.no/i2/node/11970

On Windows with NSClient++ (which is what uses NSC.ini) there is no nrpe.cfg file - that file is used on UNIX/Linux hosts that use the nrpe plugin. However the master Nagios servers uses check_nrpe to check both NPRE plugin hosts AND NSClient++ hosts running in nrpe mode. (That is the Windows client allows different modes one of which is nrpe.) The confusion comes in the fact that there are various plugin clients available one of which I think is an nrpe for Windows but you've indicated you're using NSClient++ (as we are) so your edits should be to NSC.ini on the Windows client.

Solved thanks a lot

ah its working...

basically i was missing the "NRPE HANDLERS" part in my nsc.ini file

there is a "nrpe client handers"

so just manually define the part like this in the nsc.ini file at the end of the file :

[NRPE Handlers]
command[check_proc_cnt]=C:\Program Files\NSClient++\scripts\check_winprocess-1.5\check_winprocess.exe

restarted the nsclient service and from my nagios server i run ... ""
./check_nrpe -H xxxx -c check_proc_cnt

and its showing me the output

thanks a lot for ur reference providing me but there is no need to define extra services on windows host ... just manually define the nrpe handlers part ..thats all

well thanks a lot dear

are u on skype .... or linkedIn ...i recently installed redhat satellite project in UAE...


ill wait for ur response....
