Step 2 – Create the backend Python code

Now, let's see the back end Python code (checks.py) that will accept these inputs from HTML form and perform its task. The code is as follows:

#!/usr/bin/env pythonimport cgiimport paramikoimport timeimport reimport sysimport osimport requestsimport urllibimport datetimefrom datetime import datetimefrom threading import Threadfrom random import randrangeform = cgi.FieldStorage()searchterm = form.getvalue('searchbox')cmds = form.getvalue('cmds')changeid = form.getvalue('changeid')prepost=form.getvalue('prepost')searchterm=searchterm.split(",")xval=""xval=datetime.now().strftime("%Y-%m-%d_%H_%M_%S")returns = {}def getoutput(devip,cmd):    try:        output=""        mpath="C:/iistest/logs/" fname=changeid+"_"+devip+"_"+prepost+"_"+xval+".txt" ...
