You can (probably) get the disk temperture with something like:
  smartctl -a /dev/ad4
That will give you everything else too, so you will have to
write a script to extract the chunk of data you want.
(Something like grep for Temperature and awk to print the
column you want.)

I don't know how to get that to SNMP.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
