i am using latest bitcoin from github.

i want to clean my mempool .

how can i do this ?

i dont mind restarting bitcoind to clean the mempool.

does deleting mempool.dat again, creates mempool.dat ? or it will screw up my setup ?

so that when i start bitcoind, then it will start to fill up again.



thanks

To my knowledge, when you stop bitcoind, the mempool will be deleted.
And you will start bitcoind with an empty mempool. However, if this doesn't do it, I believe that deleting the file would be absolutely fine and will not mess up your setup. It should create a new one and everything should be fine.

Stop Bitcoind. Delete the mempool.dat file. Restart bitcoind.

Stop Bitcoind. Delete the mempool.dat file. Restart bitcoind.

okie., did that, looks like it gets created again. so it is used to store mempool entries at the time of stopping bitcoind.

thanks
