Try this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. var url="ajax/moniter/moniter.php?random=" + Maths.random()
This will make sure new request is made every time, instead of picking the content from the local cache.

...except that it's Math. To be completely sure that it's unique, use a timestamp: (new Date()).getTime ()

You could also set headers to make sure the page is not cached.
