Cisco implements something called IPMROUTE-MIB.  This has been
developed within the IETF, but somehow never reached RFC status.  I
don't know whether it just died, or whether it was replaced with other
documents.  Anyway, you can use that to retrieve multicast traffic

ipMRouteInterfaceInMcastOctets and ipMRouteInterfaceOutMcastOctets are
per-interface counters.  I have a somewhat Perl script (using the SNMP
library that comes with MRTG) which can be used to generate MRTG
configuration for per-interface multicast traffic counting for all
multicast-capable interfaces on a given set of routers.  I'm attaching
it for everybody's edification/amusement.

Using the ipMRouteOctets counter, you could even draw MRTG graphs for
individual senders to individual groups!

Hope this helps,
