This example demonstrates the difference between FIFO DataSeries and standard DataSeries.
A FIFO series discards old data-points once a predefined number of points is met. This type of data-series is extremely efficient for scrolling charts, where you do not care about discarded (off-screen) data.

FIFO Series can be used in more ways than just scrolling a chart. For instance, reload the entire FIFO buffer each frame to get a Spectrum Analyzer style chart. Or, use FIFO series and set the XAxis.VisibleRange to achieve an ECG style chart.

To learn more, read the tutorials on Xamarin.Android adding realtime updates and Xamarin.iOS adding realtime updates.

To switch to FIFO series just need to set FifoCapacity for DataSeries.
