FS_FLUSH(1)		     AFS Command Reference		   FS_FLUSH(1)

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

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

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

DESCRIPTION
       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:

       o   Data	in application program buffers.

       o   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.

OPTIONS
       -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.

       -help
	   Prints the online help for this command. All	other valid options
	   are ignored.

EXAMPLES
       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/*

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED
       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.
