Always a challenging problem...  The router doesn't separate the traffic
by default.

More than likely, the answer was that MRTG can read any OID...

You can...
1.  Set up either CAR or cbqos with rules that classify the traffic, and
monitor the CISCO-CAR-MIB value that corresponds, or the cbqos mib (I
haven't tracked that one down).  Note that those mibs are not terribly
friendly in revealing their instance value.

I have done that in the past...

2.  Suck all of the traffic into a netflow collector like flow-tools and
run really granular reports that don't easily produce pretty pictures.

That's how I deal with this sort of thing now....
