Thats right. This would make nrpe obsolete. But there is currently
no host affinity. There is only hostgroups / servicegroups affinity
implemented at the moment. And i don't think its useful.
You would have to setup difficult rules to determince when a check
has to be put onto that host queue. For example you won't put a ping
or http check into the host queue.
Next thing is, you don't have nrpe on all hosts, router, switches or printer
for example. So you would have to provide a list of "nrpe" hosts. This
would make gearman difficult to setup and maintain but one of the primary
goals is to keep distributed setups easy and manage them in convenient
