I will be away from my home institution for an extended period. I plan to leave programs running on machines there. These programs periodically (every several hours) output updated results (improved estimates).
I would like to remotely keep track of these updated estimates.
Would it facilitate matters to run the programs in the Wolfram Cloud?
In any case, should I have the results saved both locally and in iCloud, and if how? (I am using Apple devices.)
I don't think I need to remotely control these programs--but, I presume, one could via some remote kernel setup.
P. S. Somewhat in line with my third comment immediately below and my first comment to user6014's detailed answer, my attempt to use the command >>> "~/iCloud/Results/myData.txt" yielded a Mathematica PutAppend error. I, then (in line with the resident consultant's advice), checked/activated the "Desktop and Documents Folder" on my iCloud Drive's option. Then, I employed the output command >>"~/Desktop/results". Now, the Desktop did in fact appear on iCloud.com, but not the particular new file "results".
