fs_flush - Forces the Cache Manager to discard a cached file or directory


fs flush [-path <dir/file path>+] [-help]

fs flush [-p <dir/file path>+] [-h]


The fs flush command removes from the cache all data and status information associated
with each specified file or directory. The next time an application requests data from the
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:

· 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 flush all data in the cache that was fetched from the same volume as a specified file
or directory, use the fs flushvolume command. To flush a corrupted mount point, use the
fs flushmount command.


-path <dir/file path>+
Names each file or directory to flush from the cache. If it is a directory, only the
directory element itself is flushed, not data cached from files or subdirectories that
reside in it. 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 the file "projectnotes" in the current
working directory and all data from the subdirectory "plans":

% fs flush -path projectnotes ./plans/*


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 -path argument, and on the ACL of
each directory that precedes it in the pathname.
