Description

Rocket Boot is a plugin for ARK Core 3.1 to dramatically speed up the boot time when the blockchain grows in size. When a new network is born, Core loads extremely quickly, but, as more blocks and transactions are added to the network, the boot time begins to increase since Core must verify and generate the state of every wallet by traversing through the entire blockchain every time it starts.

This can eventually cause issues. For example, the boot time for Core on the ARK Public Network takes several minutes for most servers. Under normal circumstances, a complete round of forging takes 6 minutes and 40 seconds. This makes it tricky for a forging delegate to be able to restart their node and get back online within the space of a round without missing a block, and this problem will only get worse as the blockchain continues to grow.

Rocket Boot comes to the rescue! When a user stops ARK Core, it automatically takes a snapshot of the verified state of the wallets and saves it to disk, which only takes a few seconds to complete. Then, when Core is started again - for example, after installing an update, testing new code or installing a new plugin - this state is restored from disk so it doesn’t have to be regenerated again.

In the case of the ARK Public Network, Rocket Boot reduces startup times from multiple minutes to between 10-30 seconds!

Check out the GitHub repository for more details about how it works and for installation instructions.

It's a rare pleasure to watch your node sync in a matter of seconds. No more going to the bathroom (any number will do) just to return to db still verifying integrity.
There is really no excuse not to use it. Should be included in ark core tbh
