More efficient – Compression. The WITSML standard supports HTTP and Gzip compression resulting in less on-wire data for the same information. – Query Optimizations. High frequency small row count data updates for Logs had a high overhead of Log header to data block ratio in 1.3.1; This has been greatly improved with support for headerless Log updates. – Change Logs. The introduction of Change Logs enables clients to query servers more efficiently. Less ambiguous – Improved documentation of the WITSML 1.4.1 API. – WITSML Certification. Unlike WITSML 1.3.1 which had a weak and self-certified approach, 1.4.1 servers can be tested against a published set of standard query sequences on a defined set of data and the results compared against pre-defined results enabling vendors to prove conformance to the WITSML 1.4.1 standard.
