I'm pretty sure Galaxy won't allow you to view any of stdout/stderr
until the tool has finished - this is especially true if run on a cluster.
However, if the tool's stdout is redirected to an output file shown
in the Galaxy history you should be able to see that as the job

My MIRA wrapper does this, I have a Python wrapper script
calling MIRA via subprocess and sending MIRA's stdout to
a text file defined as one of the outputs in the Galaxy XML.


Note that from Galaxy's point of view it was calling my Python
script which produced a small amount on stdout - which is not
available until the job finishes.
