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


       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.
