I have set up Eris on my ubuntu machine using Docker.I have created private blockchain. Eris tools provides option to work on multiple chains using below tool.
>> eris chains <start|stop|new|ls>
I have created 2-3 chains(private) on eris platform.
CHAIN ON CONTAINER ID DATA CONTAINER simple_chain - ad1c0920ca 90a8408016 demochain * 68da9f15ee adf1d1a184 testchain - ec4f7873c2 abaac8d953
A star(*) marked against demochain specifies that this chain is active(or running) right now. If I want to deploy a contract on testchain , I have to stop demochain and start testchain.
My question is this why cant we have two(or more) chains running at same time in Eris.
