You can use Veeam Monitor 4.0 free edition and it works really good though.

I created a document for monitoring VMFS via Nagios/NRPE a while back:

www.tdonline.com/training/nagios/monitor-vmfs

BTW - the NRPE agent listed there is for ESX 3.5 (x86)

You will need to get the x86_64 equivilant for running on vSphere 4 console (x64)

You can also use check_esx3.pl from op5.com. You can get all kind of info with this check (CPU, net, IO, etc..)
