Appendix C Control API

This appendix describes control API used to communicate with the running pies daemon via the control interface (see control). This API is used by piesctl (see piesctl).

The API is designed as a REST service and uses HTTP. Queries are sent to pies endpoints, each of which serves a distinct purpose. Data are serialized using the JSON format.

The sections below describe in detail each endpoint and associated with it request types.
