The process for any plug-in is to:
 - locate the plug-in on the Nagios server (copying it there if necessary)
 - run it with -h parameter and review its specific parameters and their use 
 - if it accepts a host parameter then it can likely run from the Nagios server, so run it by hand until you have the service to be monitored tweeked to respond + the parameters set up right. 
 - if there is no host parameter, install the Nagios Plugin software on the server to be monitored, potentially copy the plug-in there too, and do the plug-in run/test from the command line until it works 
 - ensure that the command to run the plug-in is configured on the Nagios server
 - define the service check, on the Nagios server, for the server to be monitored. 
    - if the check could not run on the Nagios server, then it must be run via a remote service call.  Therefore, select and configure either NRPE or SSH (or some other method) to invoked the command from the Nagios server.  Test it from the command of the Nagios server. Then use the check_nrpe or check_ssh plugin to define the service check
 - reload the Nagios config or restart the Nagios deamon
 - review the check results
 - tweek/test the check under various circumstances, stopping the cycle when it works "right"
