Help Assigning os Variable in Python

Hey Guys,

I am trying to assign the output of this command,

import os

os.system(exritool nc-stats.ri pm-radiator.inlet.ssh.nc -detail | grep -A 2 MKS | tail -1 | awk '{print $2, $3, $4}')

Which will just give me a number, to a variable we'll call "x_min" . I tried
x_min = os.system(cmd), but it didn't work. Anyone know how to get around this? Thanks
