For frame relay, you can monotor the entire interface (found by 
configmaker), or each DLCI seperately
The target line reads like: Target[<filename>]: 

eg Target[framepipe4]: 
frCircuitReceivedOctets.2.4&frCircuitSentOctets.2.4:public at

You can verify the correct interface and DLCI numbers by walking the tree 
with something like GetIf

Now what about your CIR?
I set the Maxbytes to the CIR, and use AbsMax at the highest possible 
value (PIR or Access Circuit size)
Then percentage utilisation is calculated on CIR and may exceed 100%, but 
it will still get plotted

You need to define the MRTG machine in the Firewall, and define the 
community string
snmp-server host inside poll
snmp-server community public
and if not on the inside interface, ensure snmp packets are allowed.
