Is there a way I can check where my RAM is currently allocated to / being used for?

And how can I re-use it for other things?

  • you want to know physically where is that RAM that is allocated to you .. ? – Nirdesh Kumar Choudhary Sep 4 at 7:06

    No, I want to know what dapp/contract is using it. I own 7.96KBof RAM on my account and 7.08KB is being used. However, I have no clue what it is all used for. I feel like I should have a lot more free RAM. So I want to know what is it currently used for and how can I clear it for other uses? – nickl Sep 4 at 9:10
  • There is already question about ram usage and for more clearity you can visit this blog blog.springrole.com/… – Nirdesh Kumar Choudhary Sep 4 at 12:04
  • Thanks Nirdesh, but that article does not have the answer I'm looking for. I don't really understand the technical code bit of the article, but I don't think it has my answer in it as well. I want to know on what my 7.96KB RAM is spend on right now. Is there an explorer or dapp that shows me that? And second, once I know where it is spend on, can I clear it for another use? – nickl Sep 4 at 12:28
  • you can have look at this question eosio.stackexchange.com/questions/913/… – Nirdesh Kumar Choudhary Sep 4 at 12:38

Unfortunately, as of now, there is no easy method of achieving this. One must check all actions sent in the past and look up if any of the contracts that they interacted with use their RAM. To free that RAM, one has to check the ABI of the contract to see if the contract provides any way of freeing up the RAM. Unless they do that, there is no way to free the RAM at the moment.

On the bright side, this service is something that the community can create with the current tech, so it may be just a matter of time until a web app can let you know where your RAM is allocated.

This question has also been asked here, but it doesn't have any answers either.
