The diagram below shows the architecure of the nagios-wsc plugin. Basically, nagios talks (via the check_wsc.pl plugin) to a VB.NET web service.
Different types of query can be passed which the service performs on behalf of Nagios, compiles the results and then passes back to Nagios to display. If the service detects problems, it passes back sufficient information for Nagios to alert as per normal.
For more information on what Nagios is and what it does, check out the Nagios website
