The README in the source has a bit of a description.
The Manager is a layer that separates the Scanner from the clients. It
serves an XML protocol called OMP. The Manager enables a client to start a
task, close the connection, and then reconnect later to check the progress.
The omp command's --help may help you out too. The command includes
shortcuts for some common OMP, like
to get the list of tasks as an ASCII list.
