[ntp:questions] Monitoring FreeBSD temperatures remotely

I'm trying to correlate the few microseconds NTP offset transient I get in 
the morning with the temperature of the system (and most likely with the 
rate of change of temperature).  There seems to be a triangulare-shaped 
~7microsecond transient lasting for about an hour when the heating 
switches on:


Do any of the FreeBSD experts out there know if, and how, I might be able 
to get a temperature measurement of my FreeBSD 8.0 system via SNMP? 
Ideally, motherboard temperature (Intel D410PT) but disk or CPU 
temperature would be a start.  I have discovered that the 2.5-inch disk it 
uses is SMART enabled and does report disk temperature, so tying that in 
with SNMP so that I can monitor remotely would be a start.....

My programming skills are mor ein Delphi than C/C++, I'm afraid.
