I want to build a small blockchain based on EOSIO and I want to conserve disk space on some nodes.
I don't need full history on the light nodes, just the current state of the blockchain which is in RAM. Can I delete the blocks.log file from time to time on a regular basis to free up disk space on my light node to make it lighter? Is there any recommended way or RPC call to do this?
Does this limit the ability of the node in anyway? I know it won't be able to transmit old blocks to other nodes that need to sync but I don't care for that as there will be other nodes with the full blocks.log file. Is there any other use to the blocks.log file in the EOSIO software?
