Archive Database

Archive database contains the data with the delay from tens of minutes to several hours, depending on the blockchain. It contains the data from the first (genesis).

You need to query it when you need:

  • statistics, where the latest data does not contribute much value
  • all the blocks including the blockchain
  • aggregated queries, like balances, counts, volumes

Archive Database features:

  • includes all blocks from the genesis (first one)
  • has a strong consistency of the data
  • only trunk blocks included
  • has significant delay of data (from tens of minutes to hours)
  • queries need to be optimized, as the archive size quite significant
