I want to run command in azure virtual machine with python SDK, and get status with it, if it run successfully, how to monitor it until the command terminal.

I run command to call a python file in VM and it will cost about 3 days, so I want to monitor its status. How to achieve it with python SDK?

    The only way with Azure to run a command remotely on a Virtual Machine is to use the Custom Script Extension. You will need to include any monitoring & reporting within the script.

    This question is really more of a question for the OS that you are going to run the script on, and you might have more success doing this outside of the custom script extension by going to the VM directly.

    As an example, here is a Linux custom script extension in the python SDK. Depending upon the level of monitoring / reporting needed, it might be best to do this on the VM directly, or create a callback for when the command finishes.
