In order to get the Execution time of queries executed in the Virtual DataPort server using a python script, I would perform the following steps:
* If I have Denodo Monitor configured, I would use the **vdp-queries.log** to create a new [Delimited data source ](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/8.0/en/vdp/administration/creating_data_sources_and_base_views/delimited_file_sources/delimited_file_sources#delimited-file-sources)in the Virtual Dataport Administration Tool and create a base view over the new source.
* I would then execute the newly created view using the Python script with a where condition on the **Query** column to get the execution start and end time of one specific query.
You can take a look at the[ Denodo Monitor](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/latest/en/vdp/administration/monitoring_the_virtual_dataport_server/denodo_monitor/denodo_monitor#denodo-monitor) section of the Virtual DataPort Administration Guide for more information on how to configure a Denodo Monitor and the list of logs generated by the Denodo Monitor
Hope this helps!
