Cisco Router Rate-limit

I have a Cisco 2811 that on one of the interfaces I have a rate limit put in place.  I have a syslog server that receives messages from all my equipment, to include that router.  I would like to find a way that when packets are dropped due to the rate-limit that that a syslog entry is made.  Does anyone know how to do this?

Anouther solution that might work for me is I do have What's up gold and if someone knows the MIB that would allow me to get the counters for rate-limit I could use that instead.

That could potentially be a ton of log messages r SNMP traps, it would be better to cpature the stats via SNMP and set thresholds that alert with the treshold has been violated.

The CAR MIB is the following: CISCO-CAR-MIB

Check the MIB navigator for additional details:
