I think you need to use subprocess instead of commands (but I do not really understand what do you mean by monitor the progress).

hi there!

i tried using subprocess.call and it works as how i wanted. thank you again!
what i meant by monitor the progress is that when my python script calls for the shell script, the shell script takes about 2 hours to complete. there will alot of output from the shell script. i wanted to view all those output. unfortunately, commands.getoutput doesnt do that subprocess.call works fine! thank you again!!!!
