Server scripts for help

Write a script: a second collection results ifconfig an appended to a file. A run is normal, but after a period of operation, file you can see I print time, ifconfig results did not write. How to solve the appeal, the code as follows:

Approximately how long to run a problem?

This uncertainty bug is not suitable for debugging, can only see the output log, the proposed addition of except error output (or remove try finally, it will have error output), and then look at the output of the error log analysis,
If the program must be running in the background and then joined the logging output.

You may have
  1. subprocess.Popen('/sbin/ifconfig',stdout=subprocess.PIPE,shell=True).stdout.readlines()
Returns a null value.
Is not recommended to use finally directly, it is best to use the except to the abnormal output, which can determine where there may be a problem.

I run for half an hour, the acquired data is normal (12.04, Ubuntu test system)

I added except to try it
