Incognito chain’s code upgrade (tag: 20220801_1)

Hi Incognito validators,

We’ve just released a protocol code update for Storage Pruning. Although this is an optional update, it’s always good to get your nodes updated with the latest code release.

For more details on Storage Prunning, please check out the topic to see how to delete unnecessary data in your nodes.

The latest code is published in 2 forms:

If you run pNodes or set up your vNodes by following our instructions , they should pull the latest docker image automatically. In case you encounter any issues with the code update, feel free to contact @support for assistance.

Thank you!


Nice. :metal: Let me know when we get one for newdb.

Thanks @duc.
Another trouble-free upgrade automagically took place on my vNodes.
THANK YOU Incognito Devs for making these upgrades pain free.

Sorry for the late response, I’ve missed your message, as stated in the topic, this update was just for shrinking storage usage by using state pruning mechanic.

State pruning is a different method for storage usage reduction from the experimental method your nodes are using, please check the topic out for more details.

So you wouldn’t need to bother about the update if your nodes are running the experimental newdb. Otherwise, you could enjoy starting the pruning process for your nodes. (Please note that state pruning is a CPU-intensive computation so be careful if you are operating multiple nodes on the same server)
