You need to make another rrd definition.

First, you need to tell remstats the name to OID mapping.  Look in 
config/oids.  Add lines for each OID you're interested in.

Look under config/rrds.  There will be one file per rrd type.  Pick 
something simple, like the mis-named snmpcpu (which should really be called 
something like snmp-cicso-router-cpu). Walking through the rrd definition, 
you need lines like:

this says that this rrd is to be collected by the snmp-collector
   source snmp
this is the rrdtool step
   step 300
Add the name of your OID here.  The one you put in config/oids.
   oid TheOidName
You need to define what remstats refers to as "variables".  These contain 
rrdtool's data-source definitions and they map collector data names to DS 
names.  For some collectors, they have to do more.  Note the annoyance that 
I've never fixed:  OID names are case-sensitive, but the names that the 
collector returns are lower-cased..Here you want a line like:
   data  mydsname=theoidname GAUGE:600:0:U
These are the names of RRAs to use for this rrd definition.  Look them up 
in config/archives, and add more, if you want.
   archives day-avg week-avg month-avg 3month-avg year-avg
These are the names of graph time-periods (see config/times)
   times day yesterday week month 3month year
Then add in your graph(s) definitions with a header like:
   graph mygraph desc='your description goes here'
     --title 'xyzzy'
