Migrate from Lotus to Boost

This section describes how to upgrade your lotus-miner markets service to boostd, as well as how to roll-back if you are not happy with boostd
A storage provider can run the lotus as a monolith process where everything is handled by a single lotus-miner process or separate the mining and market subsystems on different machines.
Boost supports migration from both monolith and a split-market miner. You can follow the below guides to migrate to boost.


Please note that Boost uses a SQLite database for the deal metadata and logs. Once Boost has been enabled, the new deals cannot be rolled back to the Lotus markets. If you decide to roll back after making Boost deals, you will lose all the metadata for the deal made with Boost. However, this will have no impact on the sealed data itself.
