  • Hi,

    Does anyone know why when data is received on this data source, the timestamp matches the transmission date of the source... like a curl GET but its always 1 sec behind in appearing in mango?

    I was hoping to use triggers for instantaneous updates on real time events, but the 1 sec delay negates its usefulness.

    Thanks

  • Hi Skiv,

    I have been asked to present a working use-case for the HTTP receiver data source using the Mango M2M at work.
    I am absolutely new to this. I was wondering if you would be able to help me with this or give me some ideas.
    Any sort of help would be great!!

    Thanks,
    Anirudh


  • Hi anirudhb,

    Probably the simplest way to set up an example case would be to start a mango instance on one computer that has a virtual data source making lots of random data, set up an HTTP publisher, then a HTTP receiver on a separate mango instance.

    1. Make sure you have the virtual data source and HTTP modules installed in your Mango modules folder.
    2. Create the new virtual data source on the data sources page using the add icon.
    3. Give that data source a new point that changes randomly or whatever
    4. Make the publisher on the publisher page with the add icon. Set that publisher to publish the virtual point to the network address of your other mango instance.
    5. On the second instance, create an HTTP receiver as a data source.

    That's kinda the general schema, but I'm not sure what in particular you're looking for.

    Good luck,

  • Hi Phillip,

    Thank you so much for taking out the time to help me with this. This information will definitely help me get started.
    I will give it a shot to this set this up.

    Thanks again!
