I am using Centreon to monitore our VMs.
I've also VM backups done on the ESXi (5.5.0) with ghettoVCB and sent to a NAS mounted on NFS.
Now I would like to monitore those backups with a home made script that would parse ghettoVCB logs and send the result to my monitoring server. $ So for that I want to install the NRPE daemon on the esxi in order to run that script from my monitoring server once a day.
Is that a good idea, knowing that nrpe is a daemon that would run everytime and consume resources and also security wise?
Any other idea to monitore the backups ?
