Check_MK like Plugin for VMware vCenter.

Splitted in two parts:

Reads all Clusters,Hosts,VMs and Datastores from the given VC and creates Nagios Objects for it. This has to be run as a cronjob.

Reads your JSON based configuration file and gets all needed data with one https API connection. After processing the check-functions the results are delivered via passive check.

Checks can be config/alert related, like alertstate, overallStatus,Services running on ESX-Hosts or Snapshotage of a VM.

Also Performancecounters and Externalchecks can be queried and condfigured with the JSON configuration File.
