    This plugin tests the HTTP service on the specified host. It can test
    normal (http) and secure (https) servers, follow redirects, search for
    strings and regular expressions, check connection times, and report on
    certificate expiration times.
    check_http -H | -I [-u ] [-p ]
    [-w ] [-c ] [-t ] [-L] [-a auth]
    [-b proxy_auth] [-f ]

    Host name argument for servers using host headers (virtual host)
    Append a port to include it in the header (eg:
    -I, --IP-address=ADDRESS
    IP address or name (use numeric address if possible to bypass DNS lookup).
    -p, --port=INTEGER

    -C, --certificate=INTEGER

    -e, --expect=STRING
    Comma-delimited list of strings, at least one of them is expected in
    the first (status) line of the server response (default: HTTP/1.)

    -u, --url=PATH
    URL to GET or POST (default: /)

    Set HTTP method.
    -N, --no-body
    Don't wait for document body: stop reading after headers.
    (Note that this still does an HTTP GET or POST, not a HEAD.)
    -M, --max-age=SECONDS
    Warn if document is more than SECONDS old. the number can also be of
    the form "10m" for minutes, "10h" for hours, or "10d" for days.
    -T, --content-type=STRING

    -c, --critical=DOUBLE
    Response time to result in critical status (seconds)
    -t, --timeout=INTEGER
    Seconds before connection times out (default: 10)
    -v, --verbose
    Show details for command-line debugging (Nagios may truncate output)
    This plugin will attempt to open an HTTP connection with the host.
    Successful connects return STATE_OK, refusals and timeouts return STATE_CRITICAL
    other errors return STATE_UNKNOWN. Successful connects, but incorrect reponse
    messages from the host result in STATE_WARNING return values. If you are
    checking a virtual server that uses 'host headers' you must supply the FQDN
    (fully qualified domain name) as the [host_name] argument.
    This plugin can also check whether an SSL enabled web server is able to
    serve content (optionally within a specified time) or whether the X509
    certificate is still valid for the specified number of days.
    CHECK CONTENT: check_http -w 5 -c 10 --ssl -H
    When the '' server returns its content within 5 seconds,
    a STATE_OK will be returned. When the server returns its content but exceeds
    the 5-second threshold, a STATE_WARNING will be returned. When an error occurs,
    a STATE_CRITICAL will be returned.
    CHECK CERTIFICATE: check_http -H -C 14
    When the certificate of '' is valid for more than 14 days,
    a STATE_OK is returned. When the certificate is still valid, but for less than
    14 days, a STATE_WARNING is returned. A STATE_CRITICAL will be returned when
    the certificate is expired.

    Centreon just have 'check_http' in it default config template, it just check if http is available but as you can see, it have many other option.
    you could create a other command check in centreon, which for exemple seach in page for regex STRING or other...
