Grafana not updating front end for a few days

Hey there, I have been tinkering with grafana for work during the past couple years trying to set up a live dashboard following data posted in a mysql db. All is hosted on a ubuntu server and things seem to be running smoothly until you look for the more recent data. The dashboard seem to be updating the data when it feels like it but often time we need the most recent data than what is shown. The database is updated every 5 min by a python script and I would like the graf to follow suit. Any help is appreciated thanks
