    You haven't provided much info to go on but I would use an ajax request to fetch new data from the server. Then use rows.add() and draw() to add the new data to the table.

    I'm not familiar with Codeigniter so can't give the specific steps. The first thing to do is to define how to know if there is new data, a timestamp or sequence number field for example. Then use jQuery Ajax to fetch the new data using the data option to send the latest timestamp or sequence in the client. The server can then query for anything after the timestamp and return that data. In the success function of the Ajax request use rows.add() and draw() to update the table.

    You will probably want to use`setTimeout to periodically run a function that performs the Ajax request.
