ethernet shield data logger to server & mysql question.

ethernet shield data logger to server & mysql question.

Why not just usb to the client hooked to a server?

This could allow for faster writting to the server for example date and time stamps and uControler timer numbers...?

Would that be easier than the ether shield?

Would this device have trouble remotely logging into a mysql database?
If my datalogger is fast

Josheeg,
USB is point to point, and is typically 5 feet from the CPU, although it could be up to 50 or so. It depends on the host computer to operate. Ethernet allows you to read the values from anywhere in the world.

You don't want your Ethershield to be directly accessing Mysql, or anything else, unless you have to. You would normally have your web site interrogate the Arduino, via USB or Ethernet, then write the values to the DB or web page.
