[tkined] Monitoring ucd-davis snmp variables on linux?

I'm running the latest ucd-snmp (version 4.1.1-2) on multiple linux boxes. I
would like to have tkined monitor the variables that occur under the
enterprises.ucdavis section of the snmp tree. I have done the following:

copied the relevant ucd-mib from /usr/share/snmp/mibs to
/usr/lib/tnm2.1.10/mibs. It's named ucd-snmp.mib
added the following line to my /usr/lib/tnm2.1.10/library/init.tcl file:
lappend tnm(mibs) ucd-snmp.mib
restarted tkined

The mib is getting loaded, because I can go to the SNMP browser and see it as
an option. I can also browse through the different variables listed. However,
when I try to view any of the variables from the MIB Browser, it attempts to
connect to localhost ( which fails, since I'm not running snmpd on
my monitoring machine. No matter what host icon I have selected in the tkined
map, it always attempts to access localhost.

What I really want to do is monitor these variables in graphs like the
existing interface monitoring graphs. When I go to the "Monitor Variable"
menu option under SNMP Monitor, it asks what snmp variable I should monitor.
I have tried every combination of options to get it to query a ucdavis
variable to no avail. I've tried the following:


None of these work. I either get "No such variable" or "connection refused"
(which I don't understand). Can someone please tell me the syntax for getting
tkined to monitor the ucd-snmp variables under linux? TIA
