[Nagiosplug-help] Raising verbosity level of nrpe daemon

I have trouble getting nrpe on a Nagios managed remote HPUX 11.00
host working.

To get an idea of what's going wrong I need further debugging
messages from nrpe
(I haven't checked yet if there was a special --configure option
to enable this)

Before I start installing a syscall tracer such as tusc and plug
into the proc
I would like to find out if there are any concealed command line
options nrpe can be started with
to raise the verbosity level.

But when I look at the source I fear this was not provided for.
At least the variable names assigned in the case blocks don't
imply such a functionality


# grep -En getopt\|case /usr/local/tmp/nrpe-2.0/src/nrpe.c 
1463:           c=getopt(argc,argv,optchars);
1471:           case '?':
1472:           case 'h':
1475:           case 'V':
1478:           case 'l':
1481:           case 'c':
1485:           case 'd':
1489:           case 'i':
1493:           case 'n':
