Fast syncing

The node installer comes with an easy to use fast syncing tool. To significantly reduce the time required to sync your node to the latest published state, you can use the download_state command. This command stops your node and replaces its current state with the latest published state from one of Dusk’s archival nodes.

Available states

To see the available published states, run:

Terminal window
download_state --list

Download state

To install the latest state, simply run:

Terminal window

Once it tells you the operation is complete, run the following command to start your node again:

Terminal window
service rusk start

This process will ensure your node is up-to-date with the latest blockchain state, allowing you to sync faster and get back to participating in the network in less time.
