I'm after an how too really, point me in the right direction
I have a new dashboard app, monitoring a server, last part is
I created a daemon in C, that I can call and it gives me back
server info, one being uptime, pre-processed by awk. returns
current time in minutes, average load balance last minute, 5
minute, 15 minute all standard stuff.
My flex app is set to call this daemon every minute and
updates the display. Working great :)
I have an array collection that I add too each time, pushing
in current time, and the 3 average load balance numbers.
I have this array collection as a data provider to a line
chart, the chart happily plots the values. I assigned the current
time too the horizontal category. So my chart plots
10.00,10.01,10.02,10.03,10.04 so on and so fourth each minute the
This is fine for about 30-40 minutes then the labels become
I would like to alter the horizontal axis scale a few times.
So after say 30 minutes, show labels every 5 minutes, but
still update data every minute. Then say after two hours change so
the labels are every 15 minutes but still update every minute. Then
if say 12 hours have gone by change to hours, so on and so fourth.
could do value change on length of array collection, if last index
is 30 we know 30 minutes have gone by, if last index is 120 then we
know 2 hours have gone by etc.
Next part, if the chart gets two much info. is there a way of
scrolling the data off to the left, maybe a simple un-shift(remove
item at) off the data will do, but would be nice to be able to
scroll the data back and fourth is the user wanted too.
Thanks in advance.
BTW can we post images here? screen shots etc
