Providing data (writting data to the socket):
-> "POST / HTTP/1.1\r\n" -> "\r\n" -> "type=string\0" string, maximum length 100 bytes -> "reason=string\0" string, maximum length 512 bytes -> "pid=number\0" number, 0 - PID_MAX (/proc/sys/kernel/pid_max) -> "executable=string\0" string, maximum length ~MAX_PATH -> "backtrace=string\0" string, maximum length 1 MB -> (close writing half of the socket) <- "HTTP/1.1 201 \r\n" <- "\r\n"
Deleting problem directory:
-> "DELETE <directory_name> HTTP/1.1\r\n" -> "\r\n" -> (close writing half of the socket) <- "HTTP/1.1 200 \r\n" <- "\r\n"
