Hangfire.state Cleanup



I have encountered a problem where hangfire.state reached max records.
At the moment I resolved this by changing from int to bigint.
I would like to know if there is a safe way to clean up hangfire records as the database keeps getting larger.



I’m not sure why Hangfire doesn’t use bigint by default. Any enterprise use of background jobs is quickly going to use up an int for PK.

I suppose you could always wipe and rebuild/reseed the Hangfire tables periodically, but that would have to be done with no pending jobs in the queues.
