Hi Rahul,

there are some guidelines for plugin-developers on sourceforge.net:

You probably should copy the perl-file (your plugin) in the 
plugins-folder of the corresponding server, or - if you check directly 
on the mysql-interface via tcp -  put it in the plugins-folder of your 
nagios-server (which is called libexec).
You can check via nrpe or nsca (active or passive check) on remote hosts 
or, as mentioned using a direct connection to your database via tcp.


  greetz, Marcus
