Check VMware API is a plugin developed by op5 to primarily be used with op5 Monitor, but can also be used in Naemon or Nagios installations, to monitor VMware ESX and vSphere servers. You can monitor either a single ESX(i)/vSphere server or a VMware VirtualCenter/vCenter Server and individual virtual machines. If you have a VMware cluster you should monitor the data center (VMware VirtualCenter/vCenter Server) and not the individual ESX/vSphere servers.

The plugin and check commands are included in op5 Monitor, but and the plugin can also be installed from sourcefound on github.

The goal
