I should have been more clear... here's the code:

x = time.time()
fp = os.popen("some_process", "r")
fp.read()
fp.close()
print (time.time()-x/60)/60

If fp runs for many hours (in my case it does), I want time.time() to 
return the time it runs in seconds which I would then divide by 60 to 
get the total amount of minutes which I would then divide by 60 to get 
the total amount of hours that the process has ran... does that make 
sense? I don't need to be super precise, just within 1 minute or so of 
the actual amount of time that the process required to run.
