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

	omp --get-tasks

to get the list of tasks as an ASCII list.
