mmm i would suggest to use rndc stats executed as extend snmp or a more
complex solution as mentioned on this url

personally i prefer the snmp extended.
just modify the */etc/snmp/snmpd.conf*

add a line like

extend snmpd_status /bin/bash /root/myscript.sh

restart snmpd

snmpwalk -v 2c -c public -O e NET-SNMP-EXTEND-MIB::nsExtendObjects

replace /root/myscript.sh with the command to get the stat you want  " rndc
stats" with awk or sed to filter the number you want.
