You will want to use the check_ifstatus and/or check_ifoperstatus plugins, and it will be as a simple as putting the IP of the HP switch in on the Nagios side.

On the switch however, you will need to permit SNMP to the IP of the Nagios server so that it can run the commands to gather the interface status.  If you are using anything other than "public" as your community string, then you will need to configure your SNMP secret on the Nagios side as well.
