You need to setup NRPE and the check_disk plugin.

See the following tutorial for setting up NRPE

You will need to install nrpe on the server you wish to monitor. I'm assuming you allready have a server installed with nagios that is currently monitoring other things on this server. (if not you need to allow it in the /usr/local/nagios/et/nrpe.conf file with the line allowed_hosts=a.b.c.d where a.b.c.d is the IP of the nagios server)

Once this is installled add the command definition to the monitored server:
command[check_disk_var]=/usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_disk -w 20% -c 10% -p /var

this will warn you ar 80% full and send critical alerts at 90% used

then you need to add the command to the nrpe.conf file within the /usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/ directory as follows:
define service {
                hostgroup_name                  <name of hosegroup to monitor this on>
                service_description             Var Root
                check_command                   check_nrpe!check_disk_var
                use                             generic-service

or something similar, depending on your system.

hope that helped,
