I have a Python script that collects data. It runs once a minute and sleeps for 58 seconds to prevent account overloading, which seems to work fine. However, the script gets a timeout error, typically within an hour or two:


Timeout waiting for output from CGI script


The script writes to a log file every minute and also runs a print statement. Is there anything I can do to prevent these timeouts?

You picked the Johnny server, which is the experimental server. What experimental means is it isn't suitable for production websites or production scripts. High load is common on Johnny, and is most likely causing your script to timeout. When you're done experimenting and testing you script you could consider moving to a production server like Tommy, or purchasing a VPS to host your script.
