This should be possible.
You setup the nagios server as a host with a service for check_dhcp in the nagios config. This will make it monitor itself. You might need the nrpe client setup as well.

It reports back a Warning status if not all DHCP servers respond and a Critical status if no one responds. The problem I am having is that the Nagios server is running on the same hardware as one of the DHCP servers and it does not seem to respond to the DHCPDISCOVER. I can successfully run the plug-in on a separate computer to get it to respond, but I'd like to test it from the same server running all the Nagios checks. Is it possible to send a DHCPDISCOVER to the daemon running on the same computer without using a separate network card tied to the network?
