SYNC(1M) Maintenance Commands SYNC(1M)


NAME


sync - update the super block

SYNOPSIS


sync


DESCRIPTION


sync executes the sync system primitive. If the system is to be stopped,
sync must be called to ensure file system integrity. It will flush all
previously unwritten system buffers out to disk, thus assuring that all
file modifications up to that point will be saved. See sync(2) for
details.
