Using RRDtool and investing some time because you need to write your
own scripts, you should be able to display input and output separately,
on a three-coloured background where green is 0-80% of your CIR, yellow
is 80-100% and red means above CIR.  It doesn't need to be this fancy
but if you want to do it this way, you can.
Other way of representing it:  white on a green background for the CIR,
red area on a white background for above-CIR rates.  Just some examples.

I think there is an NT distribution available.
