Action commands

Action commands allow you to query DIH, and to instruct it to perform a variety of operations.

Note that while most action commands can be issued by QueryClients, some are only available to AdminClients. All action commands must be sent to DIH's Port.

The general syntax of these commands is as follows:

http://DIHhost:port/action=action&requiredParams&optionalParams

where,

DIHhost is the IP address or name of the machine on which DIH is installed.

port is the ACI port by which commands are sent to DIH (set by the Port parameter in the DIH configuration file's [Server] section).

action is the name of the action you want DIH to execute.

requiredParams are the parameters you must supply for the action you are requesting. (Not all action commands have required parameters.)

optionalParams are parameters you may supply for the action you are requesting. (Not all action commands have optional parameters.)

Separate individual parameters with an ampersand (&).
