I have not tried this script yet, because I don't have a perl-enabled snmpd. But could you check /var/log/messages, just in case snmpd would log some errors ? Probably that /etc/snmp/ needs to be installed with execute permission (chmod +x).

Also check that the unix socket referenced in matches the one you have in your haproxy configuration. Maybe you have a slightly different path ?
