check_webservice - a Nagios plugin for testing Webservices
A small plugin written in Python for testing Webservices.
You can set HTTP Headers, choose between a GET or POST request, and check the response with one or more Regular Expressions.
Install the PyYAML library by downloading the last version from http://pyyaml.org/wiki/PyYAML
You'll need a config file. You can start with the default and tweak it to suit later:
$ ./check_webservice.py -f example.conf
That's it - you can add this script to your Nagios installation and start testing Webservices.
