Monitoring and Processing
Real-time Data with DataScene
DataScene has an easy-to-use
real-time data monitoring, charting, and processing feature. To use
this feature, all the user needs to do is to setup DataScene to link
to the real-time data source file.
Real-time Data Monitoring and Charting
To monitor and chart real-time
data, DataScene requires a data source file that should be periodically
updated by the data source (e.g. a simple program that periodically
dumps data to the data source file). The user simply setups
DataScene to import data from the data source file as a linked
source and then use the Refresh Linked Data tool to monitor
the data source file. Every time the data source file is updated,
DataScene will automatically refresh its data and all dependent
graphs and charts.
Processing Real-time Data
real-time data in DataScene is readily accomplished by using
Datascene's series functions.
A series function associate one series
(e.g. Line, Bar,
Pie, etc) to another with a defined
mathematical relation. Since series functions
automatically recalculate their results upon any data source
change, once setup with a real-time data source, they will
automatically reprocess the data upon updates of the data
source without the user's
Ease of Use
DataScene comes with a user friendly
Wizard, as well as tutorials and context-sensitive help. With the Wizard,
it takes only few minutes for a new user to learn to setup
DataScene to monitor, chart, and process a real-time data source.
