How to shutdown VMs on ESX server through nagios event handlers

Hello there,

I would need a lead on how to shutdown several virtual machine on our ESX server.

We put in place a UPS and now we want to implement a automatic shutdown of the VMs (in a certain order) when our UPS battery goes under the threshold.
I do monitor already the battery state. So I just need to put in place the eventhandler.

Does anyone around here has done this already or would have an idea on how to proceed?

Thanks for your advices,
