Cleanup IPFS and Oracle Entries

Sometimes IPFS or Oracle entries are not evicted from a developer’s contract due to the DSP experiencing unpredictable behavior. This causes the developer’s smart contract RAM supply to increase as the ipfsentry / oracleentry table rows are not evicted. If this happens, you may run the cleanup.js file with the following environment variables:

The cleanup script will auto detect which table to cleanup ipfsentry or oracleentry depending on which one is present on the contract. If both are set, you can use the TABLE env variable to specify which to cleanup.


  • CONTRACT contract to clean IPFS / oracle entries
  • DSP_ENDPOINT the DSP’s endpoint that you staked to for IPFS and/or Oracle services
export CONTRACT=lqdportfolio


  • CHUNK_SIZE represents the number of async requests for cleanups to send to the DSP at a time
  • TABLE type is auto detected based on the contract name (ipfs table: ipfsentry or oracle table: oracleentry), if a contract has both tables, you will use this variable to target both
export CHUNK_SIZE= # defaults to 5
export TABLE= # defaults to ipfsentry or oracleentry by detecting from contract

Then run with:

sudo find / -name cleanup.js
node /root/.nvm/versions/node/v10.16.0/lib/node_modules/@liquidapps/dsp/utils/cleanup.js
