I work on Linux Mint myself, have remote Ubuntu VPS server with root ssh access. I have script on server which makes long data processing (hours or ever days of processing).
Now I can open console on my machine, connect to VPS via ssh and run script - I see what script is doing in real time in my console (how much data processed, how much left and so on refreshes regulary on my console screen) - this works.
How can I do similar, but without dependencies of my local machine:
- Connect to server & run script
- Disconnect and left server to do his long processing work, while I can reboot my local machine or ever shut it down without affecting started server script execution.
- Have possibility to connect later again and see what is current status of process (same data it showed me in real time) without interrupting process.
