Talk:Server monitor example

From Organic Design

Revert if i messed you up Rob. I just want to see a working example here, but I think im missing something on the back end of this? --Phalseid 10:38, 19 Oct 2006 (NZDT)

It was just some experimentation being done a while back - looks like its broken at the moment --Nad 10:39, 19 Oct 2006 (NZDT)
np. i will play around a bit...do i need to put swf.php in the /var/www/wiki/ folder? --Phalseid 10:43, 19 Oct 2006 (NZDT)
There's not much to see with it, its a scrolling bar graph with no real input. The reason for the uni-url transform is to allow the swf to be served from where the data source is because Flash doesn't allow its code to access any data outside the domain its served from. A working example of this is in peer.swf which also has info explaining the situation. It uses peer-url.php so that the embedded swf is served by bender and therefore the running SWF is allowed to connect a tcp-socket back to bender - which it wouldn't be able to do if served from the xmlwiki environment. --Nad 10:50, 19 Oct 2006 (NZDT)
i c. i saw the Bar Graph Example and understand that, im just trying to figure out how to pass data. don't worry about it, i will try some stuff. The idea is for me to start work on a/the swf-text-editor. There are some out there right now, and if you think it worth while...i will put it on the Category:Todo and you all can offer feedback/tips/ throw rotten tomatoes... :) --Phalseid 10:57, 19 Oct 2006 (NZDT)
I've done a fair bit of code for swf-text-editor already as its part of the peer and will be implemented after the Ultra Changes.
sweet. let me know if i can do anything to help. --Phalseid 11:07, 19 Oct 2006 (NZDT)

This has good practical applications for me at Uni as I can design these nice flash graphs to display information in real time, and the page never needs to reload. There is heaps of scope for visualisation. --Rob 16:38, 24 Mar 2006 (NZST)


Excellent! now I can change the existing scripts to get rid of the pre-compiled primitives! it requires swf-version-6, but we're already dependent on at least 6, so this is some excellent progress :-) --Nad 16:29, 24 Mar 2006 (NZST)


The SWF "security" model doesn't allow you to request url's outside the domain the swf is served from, so you'll need to change from embed to publish and save the swf to that domain - currently the swf.php is hard-wired to treat the url as local (relative to htdocs). --Nad 14:43, 20 Mar 2006 (NZST)

What will do is create an article with the same format as the data I expect from the web server (with running processes etc) and get the swf to ftech that from your wiki. Then when it works I will run it from my server. --Rob 15:00, 20 Mar 2006 (NZST)
