mrtg is merely a reporting engine.  If there are no snmp mibs with the
data you want, mrtg cannot display it.

If you are looking for a strategic tool to provide this sort of
information, I would recommend that you use netflow to collect the
information, and use one of the programs listed at
http://www.switch.ch/tf-tant/floma/software.html for display.
