This document provides instructions on how to setup Unix/Linux named pipe (FIFO) to submit srvrmgr commands without opening a new srvrmgr session for each interaction.

This is dependent on Unix/Linux named pipe solution and does not work on Windows OS, but one could still write a python wrapper to simulate the same.
