fs_checkvolumes - Forces the Cache Manager to update volume information


fs checkvolumes [-help]

fs checkv [-h]


The fs checkvolumes command discards the table of mappings between volume names and volume
ID numbers that the Cache Manager stores in memory and uses when fetching data from
volumes. The next time an application requests AFS data, the Cache Manager must contact
the Volume Location (VL) Server for volume location information, and then an appropriate
file server machine for the actual data.

The Cache Manager updates the table of mappings periodically (by default, hourly), but
this command is useful if the issuer knows that a volume's name has changed, or that new
read-only replicas of a volume have been released, because issuing it forces the Cache
Manager to reference the changed volume.


Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.


The following message confirms that the command ran successfully.

All volumeID/name mappings checked.
