8 Managing the Growing Part of an Object (Protocol 6: GrowingObject)
|For Standard||ETPW20 v1|
Protocol Stability Index:2 – Unstable (for more information on stability indexes, see 1.1.2 ETP Protocols in Scope ).
The Growing Object protocol (P6) is used to request the historical portion of a growing object, with the exception of WITSML Log, ChannelSet or Channel data objects. Single growing parts or a range of growing parts can be requested or deleted, but only one growing part at a time can be added to a store. Unlike the Store protocol (P4)—where content encoding can be either an empty string or gzip—the data object parts transferred using P6 are not compressed and the content encoding must be text/xml.
