Snapshot of entire state as a WAL recovery optimization #682

Problem Definition

When recovering from the Write Ahead Log we would need to replay all the state changes that reside in it. This turns out to be too many state changes and also as result of those state changes too many messages are resent and we end up spamming our peers in Matrix.


  • Implement a queue of pending chain transactions -- Issue Link

  • Choose a snapshot point, as a point in time where we have no pending on-chain transactions. This will allow us to have a clear restarting point that will not put us in danger of ending up in a broken state when restarting.

  • At recovery/restart load up the state at the snapshot and start replaying WAL changes only after the snapshot has been taken.
