    Flush stat cache


    I need to regularly check the fill state of a tmpfs via df. However, I experienced that the answer of df is not always up to date. As far as I know df uses stat to compute the fill state of a device. Now my question is, is there a way to flush the cache that is used by stat in order to get an up to date answer from stat?
