Flex Real Time Monitoring App

I have been working on a real-time monitoring application in Flex. It connects to a server through a socket connection and receives 1 second readings of various types and plots them on graphs. The application is under 500k and the 1 second readings are very small. Flex is a perfect platform for this type of application.

      Another developer here wrote the socket server in perl that sends pipe (|) delimited data at 1 second intervals. The flex app makes a connection to the socket server on a specified port. Whenever data is received it is added to an arrayCollection that is bound to various UI components. I used the darkroom skin and tweaked it a bit for the look (http://www.scalenine.com/themes/darkroom/darkroom.html). The charts are all basic flex charts that have been tweaked some for the look we wanted. Hope this helps!

    Hi chidester,

    I’m new in Flex development, and thanks for pointing me to the right direction, however i have tried to look for the perl socket server you mentioned in the previous post, but no luck, would you be able to show me the developer’s website?
