Sorry if this is a really basic question. I am interested in the possibility of building real-time dashboards that update automatically to show the current status of metrics stored in a database. Can pentaho be used to do this?

Dashboard Components are generated on the server as images and html, and then requested by the browser client. If you need something a little less then real time (every minute or so) you could use custom client-side javascript to request an update of the dashboard page automatically.

Hope this helps!

You can use JSP libs : "ajaxtags" : http://ajaxtags.sourceforge.net/

Go to screen shots http://ajaxtags.sourceforge.net/screenshots.html

You can see a "portlet like" example, it is a part of your web app that can be refreshed every x second (or not), with minimize options...

You can load your chart in this portlet, you 'll get a real time chart
Tcho :)

I was looking for applets initially, then for SVG, but came by http://www.maani.us/gauge/

In combination with some ajax update mechanism... now that would be cool...

Turning this into a jsf tag... with some ajax... that would be cool

I took the generated example above and made it dynamic, meaning some movement. comments?
