I monitor these with mrtg and use bbmrtg to drop the status into hobbit.
I have about 70 of them.

it depends when version of code you are running on the weathergoose.  in
a few versions, when you poll that oid, it responds with an OID/Instance
pair.  snmpget doesn't seem to care.  But SNMP_Tools.pm throws a fit
when the request doesn't match the response.

You might try . instead.

Note that the watchdog reports degrees C, not F.
