Hi Ubidots Community,
I currently have set up an Ubidots dashboard that I use to monitor several near real-time metrics.
The dashboard has 2 widgets, both of which are Metric widgets using Synthetic variables.
I’ve been watching the synthetic variables through the Devices UI and they update within 30 seconds to 1 minute, which is acceptable.
However, it seems like my dashboard is not updating whenever these variables update. In the Devices UI, the variables clearly show that they have updated, but the dashboard does not reflect this unless I refresh the dashboard.
I have several questions:
- I need my Ubidots dashboard/widgets to update whenever these variables update. Shouldn’t Ubidots be doing this automatically? I assume that the widgets are should be using Ajax, and hence update in real time?
- If this is not the case, then how often do Ubidots dashboards refresh/update? Does this mean that I cannot use the dashboard to provide near-real time monitoring?
Note that I have an Industrial Ubidots account which I’m using to display these metrics in my dashboard.
