Check the .cfg example files and the -h help output from the plugins.  The
checkcommands config file should have something like:

define command{
        command_name    check_ping
        command_line    $USER1$/check_ping -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -w $ARG1$ -c
$ARG2$ -p 5

The $HOSTADDRESS$ is part of the macro set that is available when calling a
command.  See the url:

for more about available macros.

I am looking for information on plug ins that are already have been developed.
The plugin check_ping has parameterized input. What I am looking for is how do
I know which plugin needs parameterize input. And what information comes from
the config files. Check_ping is getting the host name from a config file. In
check_http where does it get the url from? A config file or by a param?
