My Nagios/NRPE is configured and working as expected for a few years now. Occasionally or sometimes even very frequently in a day I get "CHECK_NRPE: Error – Could not complete SSL handshake". Is there a way to ignore this error as Nagios starts sending alerts only to recover the next minute.


Increase some combination of the plugin timeout and the service check_interval, retry_interval, and/or max_check_attempts.
