Hi Gabi.

I found this tutorial about how to setup custom graphs in Xymon: 
From the example of custom scripts I can see that Xymon expects input in 
format of "name : value", where each pair should be on new line.
In the given example, script what parse /proc/slabinfo generates this output:
inode_cache : 7100160
dentry_cache : 752640

When you run unbound-control stats command it produces output in this format:

All you need to do is sed stats output:
unbound-control stats | sed s/=/" : "/
thread0.num.queries : 0
thread0.num.cachehits : 0
thread0.num.cachemiss : 0
thread0.recursion.time.avg : 0.000000

Or, if dots in variables names are unvanted use this:
unbound-control stats | awk -F '=' '{gsub(/\./,"_",$1);print($1" : "$2)}'
thread0_num_queries : 0
thread0_num_cachehits : 0
thread0_num_cachemiss : 0
thread0_recursion_time_avg : 0.000000
