Moonbeam Relay Chain / Polkadot Snapshots

Extracted from Moonbeam version: moonbeam 0.28.1

The database is recovered from RocksDB and pruning 1000.      

RECOMMENDED: We recommend using snapshots only for backup servers. For the producer validator it is better to synchronize the network from the beginning.

RECOMMENDED:  we recommend using screen to leave it in the background, since it is a long process and could be interrupted.

If your database is configured for pruning=archive, you should change it to pruning=1000


If you don't know how to configure it, you can follow the official guide:

https://docs.moonbeam.network/node-operators/networks/run-a-node/systemd/#purge-your-node
