Then the answer is simple: how would you figure out the remote process pid
using ssh? Once you found that out, pass that to Popen. Make sure you
capture stdout of the Popen-class to get the answer.

Something like

ps aux | grep <script_name> | grep -v grep | awk '{print $2}'

should be the command.
