How to non-disruptively upgrade MultiChain

+1 vote
Hi, is there a method of non-disruptively upgrading MultiChain? Our application will require it to be online 24/7. It is quite literally going to be the difference between life or death.


If not currently - is it road mapped?

Your answer here is to run multiple nodes simultaneously, and upgrade them one-at-a-time. This will give you extra redundancy anyway, which sounds important for your use case.

You can share keys between nodes using dumpprivkey and importprivkey, if that will help you. And you can send API requests that read the blockchain's state to any of the running nodes.

BTW, as a disclaimer, at this stage of its development we cannot recommend using MultiChain in a such a critical situation.
