Long running console command

I have an app to calculate the fines of school fee. Since this is to calculate for more than 5000 students, I need to be able to run it for long time (approx 2-3 minutes).

Currently, I am using normal web app, with a work around by using ajax, call for every 500 students. Otherwise, I will get into time out.

Is this extension able to be run for a long time? Or at least just trigger the command without waiting for the result? I don't mind not to see the progress of the calculation.

Thank you,
