I looked at converting temperature-larrd.pl when doing the Hobbit
larrd stuff, but I couldn't find the script that feeds it - and
without some idea of what the input data looks like, it's a bit hard
to do the data collection.

Where can I find the client side script ? Or perhaps you can just send
me a sample of the status it reports.

You mean doing it in C is too hard :-)

The current work-around is to enable the hobbitd_filestore module to
save status- and data-reports to files, the way Big Brother does.

There's an option for hobbitd_filestore so you need not save all
status logs on disk, but only the ones you want to process with some
other tool.
