[mrtg] Cisco Buffer Hits OID

I'm trying to convence management that certain WAN links need help. They see 
the utilization bouncing between 50% and 75% and say, "what's the problem? 
There's plenty of capacity left." They don't want to hear that the rule of 
thumb is 50% == full.

So, I want to graft Cisco buffer hits. If, I can show them that the buffers 
keep getting hit, that that means that packets are having to get queued up 
to get across the WAN link. A queued packet is a delayed packet.

I've been trying to find the Cisco OID for buffer hits and can't seem to 
find one. I'm looking for the values you see when you type "show buffers."

In OLD-CISCO-MEMORY-MIB I found a set of OIDs that seem to relate, but my 
router (IOS 12.0.9) doesn't seem to have those values in it's tree. I also 
searched the list archive and didn't find any relevant postings.

Anybody have any ideas?
