NAME

       aoe-revalidate - revalidate the disk size of an aoe device

SYNOPSIS

       aoe-revalidate e{major}.{minor}

DESCRIPTION

       The  aoe-revalidate command tells the aoe driver to revalidate the disk
       size of an  open  aoe  device.   Normally  the  aoe  driver  will  only
       acknowledge changes in an aoe device’s disk size when the aoe device is
       not open.  Aoe-revalidate will cause the driver to pause  any  I/O  for
       the  aoe  device  while revalidating the disk size.  After revalidation
       I/O is resumed.

       It should be noted that  if  an  aoe  device’s  disk  size  shrinks  in
       revalidation  any  users  may  become  hopelessly  confused  when their
       resumed I/O starts to fail.
