Integration into OpenNMS should be very simple if you have a working SNMP 
agent. But the Agent ist the problem. This is really hard work.

A very simple solution is the "extend" feature of net-snmp. You could 
integrate your scripts into the net-snmp agent.So gathering some basic data, 
- number of tunnels in Phase 1
- number of tunnels in phase 2
- number of isakmp established
- ...

should be possible very easy. Just read man snmpd.conf. Please also feel free 
to contact me for further questions or for the integration into OpenNMS.
