Nagios comes with a set of pre-installed check commands. They are installed at /usr/libexec/nagios or /usr/local/nagios/libexec (anyway, the $USER1$ is expanded to the right place) In that folder you can find several check_whatever commands, most of them are binary files, some are shell or perl scripts.
