fs_flushvolume - Forces the Cache Manager to discard cached data from a volume
The fs flushvolume
command removes from the cache all data that was
fetched from the same volume as each specified directory or file. It does not
discard cached status information. The next time an application requests data
from a flushed directory or file, the Cache Manager fetches the most current
version from a File Server, along with a new callback (if necessary) and
associated status information. This command has no effect on two types of
- Data in application program buffers.
- Data that has been changed locally and written to the cache
but not yet written to the copy on the file server machine.
To discard the data and status information associated with individual files and
directories, use the fs flush
command. To flush a corrupted mount
point, use the fs flushmount
- -path <dir/file path>+
- Names a file or directory from each volume for which to
discard all cached data. Partial pathnames are interpreted relative to the
current working directory, which is also the default value if this
argument is omitted.
- Prints the online help for this command. All other valid
options are ignored.
The following command flushes from the cache all data fetched from the volume
that contains the current working directory:
% fs flushvolume
The issuer must have the "l" (lookup) permission on the ACL of the
root directory of the volume that houses the file or directory named by the
argument, and on the ACL of each directory that precedes it in
