Package: nagios-nrpe-plugin
Version: 2.12-1
Severity: normal

check_nrpe -t 60 for example is not working.
The timeouts are always 10s , which is the default according to the manual.

There is also a strange behavior when using -u and -t .
The option -u is working only when -t is not specified.


/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_nrpe -H <hostname> -u -c procs -a root cron
CHECK_NRPE: Socket timeout after 10 seconds.
3 ---------> UNKNOWN

/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_nrpe -H <hostname> -u -t 60 -c procs -a root cron
CRITICAL - Plugin timed out after 10 seconds
2 ---------> CRITICAL
