I think you need to define a little better exactly what you want this
trend line to graph.  I didn't quite get it from this description.  It
might turn out that it is doable already, or is something somebody
could tell you how to do if you clarify a little more.

"Growth towards the service level" means what?  Maximum value ever seen
to that point in time (maximum of maximum)?  Exponential rolling
average of the maximum?  Or did this tie in to the percentile
discussion because you want it to graph the 95th percentile over a
rolling time window?
