What you are trying to do is called 'masterless puppet'. There are lots of results if you search for that. Ultimatly, you only need a few things.

You can either create an individual manifest which has everything you need (the approach you currently have), or you can create a proper 'module' to perform the parts that you need performed. (see Either way you need to have a manifest that calls your modules.

1) a manifest file that can apply your module (for your above, since you have everything hard coded into your my_module::nrpe would be 'include mymodule::nrpe' ) 1) A delivery mechanism to get your puppet code to your servers. puppet-librarian/r10k/git pull in a cron, NFS/shared drive

2) Properly configure your puppet environment to access the pulled in puppet code.. Your modules need to be properly added to your modulepath, and you either need to set up your puppet config to set the modulepath where your modules live, or specify it in your puppet command (puppet apply /manifests/path/nodes.pp --modulepath /path/to/your/modules/

3) a cron or some other scheduler to run your puppet apply command as frequently as you require.

If you need any additional help, feel free to reach out. It would be good to either create a proper module, work up from there, or possibly find a module from the forge that does what you require.
