When running a webserver with multiple vhosts, this plugin can test each vhost separately and report the status as a single service result.
The plugin uses a textfile as input with a single vhost per line, so when adding new vhosts or removing vhosts, the input file can be modified and the changes will take effect when the next check is run.

It has options to use an IPnumber instead of the vhost name to bypass routes caused by hostname resolution and it can use a different port (e.g. -p 8080 to check vhosts on a tomcat server)

Any kind of failure will result in CRITICAL, I couldn't find a reason to include WARN as state (let me know if you know any good reason).

v0.2 is more like the plugin guidelines suggest, though I haven't figured out yet how to skip creating temporary files.

new in v0.2 is the -d flag, which makes the script save the downloaded files in /tmp so you can check which strings to use for validation.

v0.3 fixes the use of wget's exit status and knows the difference between wget versions < 1.12 and >= 1.12

USAGE:

command definition:
define command {
command_name check_vhosts
command_line $USER1$/check_vhosts -H $ARG1$ -f $ARG2$ -v 1
}

in the service definition:

check_command check_vhosts!$HOSTADDRESS$!/path/to/vhostsfile

vhostsfile:
fqdn1URIString expected back
fqdn2URIString expected back for fqdn2
