NAME

       aoe-flush - flush the down devices out of the aoe driver

SYNOPSIS

       aoe-flush [-a]
       aoe-flush dev1 [dev2 ...]

DESCRIPTION

       The  aoe-flush  command tells the aoe driver to remove devices from the
       system and forget about them.  Normally the aoe  driver  will  remember
       all devices it has seen until the module is unloaded.  By default, aoe-
       flush will only flush downed devices.  With the -a flag all devices are
       candidates for removal.

       aoe-flush  will  not  remove  devices  that  are in use.  This includes
       devices in the closewait  state  or  those  in  the  process  of  being
       installed.

       By  specifying a series of specific aoe devices, e.g., e7.0 e3.2, it is
       possible to ask the aoe driver to forget these devices.   This  feature
       may be convenient after a temporary AoE target is no longer being used.

OPTIONS

       -a     The -a option tells the aoe driver to forget all unused devices.

EXAMPLE

       nai# aoe-stat | grep e12.0
            e12.0         0.000GB   eth1 down
       nai# aoe-flush
       nai# aoe-stat | grep e12.0

BUGS

       Flushed  devices  may reappear when they are discovered by the periodic
       discovery beacon.  aoe-discover may be used to force this behaviour.
