This is based on wiburg's checkhttp perl script with many new configurable options - read the parameter list below:

Usage: -H -u -p -s

[-w warning HTTP code] [-c critical HTTP code]
[-W warning content regex] [-C critical content regex]


This plugin tests the HTTP service on the specified host. The warning and/or
critical conditions can be either the HTTP response code or a regular
expression which matches the HTTP body.

-H, --host

-u, --url (Default: /).

-p, --port (Default: 80).

-s, --ssl

Attempt SSL connection (Default: off).


-A, --useragent

Specify the User Agent header value (Default: "check_http").


-n, --hostname

Specify the Host header value (Default is the same as the host address).


-m, --method <(GET|POST)>

Specify the HTTP request method (Default: GET).


-t, --timeout

Set the timeout for the request in seconds (Default: 10 seconds).


-M, --maxredir

Set the maximum number of redirects to be performed. (Default: 7).


-r, --post_param

Specify a paramter name for when the selected method is POST.


-v, --post_value

Specify a value for when the selected method is POST.


-T, --content-type

Set a content type for POST requests (Optiona).

-k, --cookie_value

Specify a value for a cookie.


-w, --warningHttpCode

Return state=warning, if the specified HTTP code (404, 303, ...) is returned.


-c, --criticalHttpCode

Return state=critical, if the specified HTTP code (404, 303, ...) is returned.


-W, --warningExpression

Return state = warning if regex matches against page content.


-C, --criticalExpression

Return state = critical if regex matches against page content.


The -w, -c, -W and -C options can be specified multiple times.

If -w, -c, -W or -C option are not specified the following rules apply:

OK: HTTP Response Code 2xx
WARNING: HTTP Response Code 3xx
CRITICAL: HTTP Response Code 4xx or 5xx


But without the -w, -c, -W and -C options you would be better off using the standard check_http plugin.

-h, --help

Prints this help message.

Nice plugin that allows to pass a cookie but what happened to the username and password option? Am I missing something?
