Is there any plugin in Nagios that supports SOAP? I have a soap server and I would like to send requests from nagios. Is that possible?

A quick search on nagios exchange turned up this, although writing your own should be trivial.

you should be able to easily do it with the built in http request job. Its a bit tricky to get correct - but it is doable.

As an aside - we use this for THOUSANDS of monitors. I just got it working for my own use for the first time 20 minutes ago so I figured I would do a drive by and share. – Max Dercum Feb 19 '13 at 7:09
Lone link is considered a poor answer (see faq) since it is meaningless by itself and target resource is not guaranteed to be alive in the future. It would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. – j0k Feb 19 '13 at 7:27
