Parser vs. Analysis Comparison

Parser vs. Analysis Comparison

The Payload Parser was created to handle raw payload sent by the devices in order to extract the measured variables or execute simple operations.

Analysis is much more powerful, including access to buckets and external services. Also, there is a cost to run them.

Payload Parser has only a simple JavaScript engine which was coded by TagoIO to be easy, light and free. See some of the differences between them:
