This won't work.  You have to calculate "now" and "now-1d" in the
front end.  The results can be given to RRDtool.

CDEF:t=NOW   doesn't work (AFAIK)
CDEF:t2=t,86400    won't work because of the previous error
VRULE:t2#FF0000    won't work because t2 should be a number, not a var

(this last thing is expected to change in the future).

For now:  in your script calculate t and t2.  Then give "CDEF:${t2}#FF0000:"
to RRDtool (where "${t2}" is parsed by your OS, not by RRDtool)
