How to show real time data from mysql



I have some mysql queries where I get the count of jobs. I need to know if its possible to show this count in real time on dashboard.


Please let me know if there is any way how I can proceed


If you go to, there is a free course from Microsoft called "Intelligent Apps."  Within the course there is a module on real time analytics using PowerBI for visualization.  It might be worth a watch for your situation, although it will not provide a perfect solution (you will have to do some customization).
