fs_flush - Forces the Cache Manager to discard a cached file or
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
Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options
The following command flushes from the cache the file "projectnotes" in
the current working directory and all data from the subdirectory
% 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
