[TIP] Running Coverage.py with Production load and getting the report every hour

Hi All,

We want to run coverage.py in our production application. We want to
discover the obsolete code and see the report with actual production load.

I have played with coverage.py tool and have seen that it creates the
report after execution/termination and till that time it keeps everything
in memory.

Is there a way I can configure it to dump the report at regular interval
like every hour or daily without stopping my application. and Later on I
can merge and create a consolidated report.
