Using snapshot are optional but it can help you save time to get latest blocks. We do manually update our snapshot for the testnet (because of limited resource).

Instructions (How To Use Snapshot)

First thing you need to stop your nodes, but keep save your priv_validator_state.json

sudo systemctl stop nolusd
cp $HOME/.nolus/data/priv_validator_state.json $HOME/.nolus/priv_validator_state.json.backup
rm -rf $HOME/.nolus/data

Download the snapshot

curl -L | tar -Ilz4 -xf - -C $HOME/.nolus
mv $HOME/.nolus/priv_validator_state.json.backup $HOME/.nolus/data/priv_validator_state.json

Restart your nodes services

sudo systemctl start nolusd && sudo journalctl -u nolusd -f --no-hostname -o cat
