Agoric Snapshots

Agoric is a blockchain platform that operates on the Cosmos network, designed to enable secure and scalable smart contract functionality. Agoric aims to provide developers with the tools and infrastructure needed to build decentralized applications (dApps) and execute complex smart contracts. It utilizes the Tendermint Proof-of-Stake (PoS) mechanism, along with a native asset, to secure its network. Built on the Cosmos SDK, Agoric enables developers to create decentralized applications (dApps) using JavaScript smart contracts.

Agoric provides built-in decentralized finance (DeFi) building blocks that allow developers to easily create DeFi applications on the platform and additionally offer a second local currency that can be used for facilitating economic activity and maintaining a healthy ecosystem within the network.

Download Agoric testnet Snapshot

How to use

Download the snapshot

wget https://snapshots.bwarelabs.com/agoric/testnet/agoric20240528.tar.lz4

If Agoric was already on your machine, stop your Agoric service

sudo systemctl stop agoric.service

OR container

docker stop <AGORIC_CONTAINER_NAME>

AND make sure there is no process running that might try to write to the database

ps -ef | grep agoric-node

Make sure your agoric data directory is clean (let us assume <AGORIC_HOME> is your root Agoric directory)

rm -rf <AGORIC_HOME>/data/*

Make sure you have lz4 installed

sudo apt-get install lz4

Decompress the archive

lz4 -c -d agoric20240528.tar.lz4.tar.lz4 | tar -x -C <AGORIC_HOME>/data

Start the Agoric service OR container!

What is Agoric snapshot?

Our Agoric snapshot can be particularly valuable when syncing a new node to the testnet or mainnet network. Instead of downloading and validating the entire blockchain from scratch, a new node can use a snapshot to quickly synchronize within the network.

Why use our Agoric snapshot?

Using our snapshots during the setup of full Agoric chain nodes can significantly speed up the syncing process by skipping the validation of all data. This can greatly enhance the speed of the setup. Instead of syncing from scratch with other nodes, you can utilize our Agoric snapshot to sync faster.

What is the block number of Agoric Snapshot?

A node snapshot is a snapshot of the blockchain at a specific point in time, and it includes data and state of the blockchain up until that block number. The block number determines the specific point in the blockchain's history that the snapshot represents.

The current block number of Agoric testnet snapshot is 5397353

The current block number of Agoric mainnet snapshot is 15216691

How often is the Agoric snapshot updated?

Regular updates are made to ensure accurate and up-to-date information. The frequency of the updates depends on the specific data being captured. We regularly update our snapshots to reflect the most recent and accurate state of the Agoric chain.

How long does it take to restore a node using Agoric Snapshot?

The time it takes to restore a node using a snapshot can vary depending on several factors, including the size of the snapshot file and the performance of the underlying hardware. In general, the process involves transferring the snapshot data to the node's storage and then initializing the node from that snapshot. For smaller snapshots, the restoration process can be relatively quick and may take just a few minutes. However, for larger snapshots or in cases where the network or storage infrastructure is slower, the restoration process can take longer, potentially several hours.

The Agoric testnet size is 12G.

The Agoric mainnet size is 34G.

What does it mean if a snapshot is pruned?

The pruning of a node snapshot refers to the process of removing unnecessary data from the blockchain database to optimize storage space while keeping the integrity of the data. Pruning allows nodes to store only the most essential information needed for the blockchain's operation while discarding older and less relevant data.

The Agoric testnet snapshot is pruned.

The Agoric mainnet snapshot is pruned.

What is the main difference between pruned and archival nodes?

Pruned and archival node snapshots are two different approaches to storing blockchain data in a more efficient manner. Pruned node snapshots prioritize storage efficiency by discarding older transaction data, while archival node snapshots prioritize preserving the complete blockchain state.
