Just configure different targets in the mrtg.conf file :

Target[gw]: 2:community@host
MaxBytes[gw]: 16000
Title[gw]: title
Options[gw]: growright, bits
PageTop[gw]: <H1>Traffic Analysis for Serial0
 <BR>My Link</H1>
 <TABLE>
   <TR><TD>System:</TD><TD>My System </TD></TR>
   <TR><TD>Maintainer:</TD><TD></TD></TR>
   <TR><TD>Interface:</TD><TD>Serial0 (2)</TD></TR>
   <TR><TD>IP:</TD><TD> ()</TD></TR>
   <TR><TD>Max Speed:</TD>
       <TD>16000.0 Bytes/s (frame-relay)</TD></TR>
  </TABLE>
