What's the "easiest" way to implement some real-time trending plot on the internet?
I want to have five graphs, each graph having four colored dataset.
The four dataset will share a common time on X axis, but will have different Y axis (two Y axis on the left and two Y axis on the right)
Each graph needs to update ever 5 second (unless there's no new data).
User can show historical data from previous 0.1 to 96 hours (selectable), while trending.
Thank you.

    Thanks for the suggestions, btw is any that are written in C++.Net (unlikely but just asking)?

    No, all the avobe solution are mostly written in JavaScript. But you can use them on your .Net Project. And in the case of Visual c++ .net, I don't think so much flexible solution is available there free. There are some activeX for chart drawing - which are entirely written in Visual C++ .  If you want paid solution then just googled for it - you'll find many.
