Op5 has written an excellent article howto monitor Esx3.x, ESXi, vSphere 4 and vCenter Server with op5 Monitor. This article is op5 Monitor centric but op5 Monitor is based on Nagios so this article can be used to implement Nagios vmware monitoring.

The plugin used to gather the information is GPLd and developed by op5.
