How do I monitor a webpage for specific content. This would allow me to monitor if the site is up. I can monitor the http process. But that does not guarantee the webpage is up. How do I monitor in Opsview Nagios?

The nagios check_http client can check for content.  You just add a -e "content" to check for the word "content", and it will fail if it doesn't find that word.

See this page for the details on the check_http nagios plugin.
