OMF Endpoint Notes (PI Web API OMF Services)

The OSIsoft Message Format (OMF) defines a format for data messages that can be read by compliant OSIsoft products. It defines an abstract message type, where a message consists of a set of key/value pairs, called the header, and a binary payload, called the body.
