Hi,
My requirement is i have to execute a python script on a remote machine as a subprocess from a python script and to get the subprocess pid of the process running the script. Is there anyway to do that??
I have used subprocess.popen() method to do that. I have done as following:
executable = '/usr/bin/rsh'
args = [executable, hostname, scriptname]
pid = subprocess.popen(args)
It returned the pid of rsh. But i am interested in the pid of the process running the script.
Can anyone help me out here?
Thanks,
Srini
