Question about QoS over frame-relay

Posts: n/a
My question is about appling QoS over a frame-relay subinterface. I
inherited an MPLS network that has mostly T1s on the CE end of things,
but a few locations have frame-relay connections instead. A typical
frame-relay setup looks something like this:

On the physical interface:
interface Serial0/1/0
bandwidth 1536
no ip address
max-reserved-bandwidth 100
encapsulation frame-relay IETF
load-interval 30
no fair-queue
service-module t1 remote-alarm-enable
frame-relay traffic-shaping
frame-relay lmi-type ansi
hold-queue 40 out

On the subinterface:
interface Serial0/1/0.525 point-to-point
bandwidth 1536
ip address
ip verify unicast reverse-path allow-self-ping
no ip redirects
no ip unreachables
ip virtual-reassembly
frame-relay interface-dlci 702
class VOIPovFR

The frame-relay map class:
map-class frame-relay VOIPovFR
frame-relay cir 1536000
frame-relay bc 15360
frame-relay be 0
frame-relay mincir 1536000
service-policy output QOSpolicy

The QoS policy & class maps:
class-map match-any REAL-TIME
match ip dscp ef
class-map match-any CRITICAL-DATA
match ip dscp af41
match protocol h323
class-map match-any TRANSACTIONAL-DATA
match access-group 110
match access-group 111
(I'm leaving out the access-lists, as they are extensive, and I'm not
worried about them right this moment.)

policy-map QOSpoliy
description Based on telco's recommended settings
priority percent 35
police cir percent 35
conform-action transmit
exceed-action set-dscp-transmit 0
set dscp af41
police cir percent 35
conform-action transmit
exceed-action set-dscp-transmit 0
set ip dscp af21
police cir percent 20
conform-action transmit
exceed-action set-dscp-transmit 0
class class-default
police cir percent 10
conform-action transmit
exceed-action transmit

Everything looks OK to me, but since I've not worked with QoS over
frame-relay, I'm not 100% sure this is a proper setup. One thing I
noticed is that I cannot generate a graph of QoS statistics using SDM,
which I have no problem doing with my CEs that are using T1. Is it
not possible to use SDM to view those stats, and if not, is there a
command-line equivilant?
