fs_flushvolume - Forces the Cache Manager to discard cached data from a volume


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

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


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:

· 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 command.


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