Seeing output of command over ssh

Hey Guys,

i have a script that generates logs at our isilon storage.

The part of the script is to geneate logs and grep its name:
VAR=`ssh -o UserKnownHostsFile=/dev/null root@XXX isi_gather_info | grep -i "Package:" | awk '{ print $2 }'`

Now , while this is run, i do not see the status of the logs creatation:

[XX@XX ~]$ sudo ./ 
Welcome root
Running isi_gather_info on the remote server
The authenticity of host 'XX)' can't be established.
DSA key fingerprint is 5e:2b:f6:80:b6:62:33:78:f5:6f:00:32:a4:f7:d0:f7.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
Warning: Permanently added 'XX' (DSA) to the list of known hosts.

The generation works fine , but there is no way to know if the script is actually running or if its hung.

However , when i run this locally on the isilion i can see logs being generated:
XX-1# isi_gather_info
Unlocking gather-status
Gather-status unlocked
Error running "isi firmware status"
This may take several minutes. Please do not interrupt the script. .....................

Anyone has a clue how can i make this output appear when i run the script on a remove linux server?

Thanks for help in advance

Not sure I understand the entire post, but as your command's stdout finally ends up in VAR after piping it several times, what be the contents of VAR?

Giving you the idea, I am assuming you are using IBM storage.

ssh admin@yourstorageip isi_gather_info

Through above command you will able to see something on your linux server. If not working please more detail.
