This won't really help you, since the default is to run nrpe out of

On your nagios server, configure a service that uses check_nrpe to check
a named check on the remote host.  Then, on the mysqld host, create a
checkcommand in nrpe.cfg to do the (local) check that you want to do.
NRPE will perform the check and send the result back to check_nrpe on
the nagios server.

I believe that on the remote host you need the nagios-plugins and
nagios-nrpe packages, available from rpmforge.  (The nagios server needs
the nagios-plugins-nrpe package in addition to the other nagios packages
you probably already have.)

The config files are fairly well documented, and the PDF you were
referred to is very thorough.
