Short description

This module allows Alignak Pollers to bypass the launch of the check_nrpe process. This allow to use NRPE checks without the need to install the Nagios NRPE plugin.

This module reads the check command and opens the connection by itself. It scales the use of NRPE for active monitoringof servers hosting NRPE agents.
