Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have downloaded the file nagios-plugins-1.4.16.tar.gz and nrpe-2.14.tar.gz. I have extracted the two files. Then in nagios-plugins-1.4.16 folder, i have run the command from root as as ./configure --with-nagios-user=nagios --with-nagios-group=nagios
then next command as sudo make
and then sudo make install
everything went fine
But after extracting nrpe-2.14.tar.gz, i have run the command ./configure
and then in the nrpe-2.14 folder, there is no make file because I have to run the following commands
Since there is no make file inside the nrpe folder, how shall i run the make command, so that the plugins get installed??
Seeing as you're just getting started I would *VERY* strongly urge you NOT to use NRPE (I'd urge you not to use Nagios but that's too late!) use the check_by_ssh plugin instead, and then you don't need to set up any nasty insecure NRPE junk. Just put the scripts in a suitable location and call them via check_by_ssh. there is no need to "install" them, they're just scripts.
All the configuration files are correct, but still I am getting the error as (Return code of 127 is out of bounds - plugin may be missing)
So can you run the plugin on the actual client machine? As Nagios is so ugly and clunky you can at least break into the chain of manual commands being executed, check what command is being run by the nrpe plugin and run it directly on the target, and then also run the check_nrpe commadn directly from the server.
Hmm, since when did someone in the open source, non-mainstream community think that pure popularity was a marker of quality? Please stop advertising your own commercial interests. Scott, if you wish to officially come here with your colleagues to drive traffic to your own business website, you should speak to Jeremy about the options that may well be open to you.
