Description Tomas Edwardsson 2013-06-05 12:29:35 UTC
Created attachment 757149 [details]
The  multi packet patch

Description of problem:
nrpe by default only allows answers which are 1024 in length, everything else is automatically (silently) cut off. This affects the ability to get large amounts of perfdata and status.

A patch attached allows for multiple packets to be sent to accomidate 16KiB or less. 

check_nrpe with this patch handles gracefully connections to non-patched nrpe daemons so impact of including this patch should be none.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.14 and older

How reproducible:

Create a nrpe.cfg entry with
command[check_psef]=ps -ef

check_nrpe -H ... -c "check_psef"

Run ps -ef | wc -c vs check_nrpe piped through wc -c

Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2013-09-16 14:06:04 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 20 development cycle.
Changing version to '20'.

Comment 2 Franky Van Liedekerke 2013-10-24 12:53:49 UTC
I also use this patch for quite some time already (and it is needed on servers with e.g. many cpu's when reporting CPU info, idem for disks). Is there any reason why it has not been included in the mainstream yet? I see a new version for nrpe was released on 2013-10-16 but this older enhancement request is not in there ...
