time interval at which google analytics update the hourly data.
I am creating a report, in which i have to show the number of sessions, users and registrations that have occurred today in a live feed. I see that the ga dashboard is updated only till 7 am in the morning although its 10:41 am right now. Can I know after what time interval does the analytics server is updated? I am using core analytics api to fetch the data as of now, if any other api suits my requirements do suggest.

Data freshness usually depends on the volume of your data - from minutes with small websites two hours with large websites. You may consider real-time reporting instead. There is also a real-time API .
