I have a file
./a/test.txt (1 KB, old one) ./unionWritableFolder/test.txt (2 KB, should be overriding) ./unionMergedFolder/test.txt (1 KB, old one)
if I do this:
echo 3 | sudo -k tee /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches
the newest modified file on an AUFS
unionMergedFolder will be the correct one:
Otherwise it will keep showing the old file:
It is like the cache is not being updated? I don't really understand what is going on. Is there some way to make the cache work properly? so I don't need to drop it all the time?
P.S.: I don't intend to stop using AUFS as it is very good to understand and use, very user friendly.
