How do I create a backup snapshot of a node?

Creating a backup snapshot of a node is a good idea if you'd like to redeploy a node but would like to avoid resyncing the node from genesis.

The steps are as follows:

Install lz4

sudo apt install lz4

Stop the node

sudo systemctl stop mantrachaind

Create the snapshot

tar -c -C $HOME/.mantrachain data/ wasm/ | lz4 - mantrachain_$(date +"%d-%m-%Y-%H-%M").lz4

Start the node

sudo systemctl start mantrachaind
