It depends on the platform.  For most recent versions of IOS, it will be
in the CISCO-ENTITY-SENSOR-MIB.  The OID will vary by platform and boot.

If you look at the templates that I posted on Steve's site, I have an
example of trolling the entity-sensor-mib at the bottom of the IOS
Modularity template.  Obviously, you would need to do a bit of research
to determine the appropriate type of sensor to poll and what other
criteria make it "interesting".  On the 6500 series platforms there are
4 sensors on every card, and monitoring that many temperature settings
isn't terribly useful.
