->ENCODERSgts encoder conversion
->ENCODERS is available since version 2.1.0.
->ENCODERS function converts an encoder into one encoder per type in the encoder. The result is a map, with key describing the type. If defined, name, labels and attributes are kept in the result.
Function also accepts wrapped or raw-wrapped encoders.
An encoder is very similar to a Geo Time Series™, it differs by its ability to store values of all four types (LONG, DOUBLE, BOOLEAN, STRING) and since 2.1 also BINARY content, when a GTS is limited to the type of the first value stored. An encoder can also have a name, labels and attributes.
The set of operations which can be performed on encoders is more limited than those that can be performed on GTS.
