MRTG allows you to invoke an arbitrary script (rather than an SMTP query), 
so you don't need a MIB.  The script must return four lines of output:

1) current state of the first variable, normally 'incoming bytes count'
2) current state of the second variable, normally 'outgoing bytes count'
3) string (in any human readable format), telling the uptime of the target
4) string, telling the name of the target

So you can graph anything at all that you can figure out, as long as you 
remember you need =two= variables.  Input vs Output, System vs User,  Swap 
Used vs Total Virtual Memory, etc.
