RHEL 3.0AS | ext3-fs
I removed a 20G file when I noticed 100% usage in df. Usually it takes time before df will report the new (correct) usage, where du will report the new usage right away in dir where the offending file resided.
"sync" command does not do what I expect, so does anyone know a way, without rebooting, unmounting fs etc to force df to re-read and report new usage? (it's own --sync does'nt work either)

I'm perfectly happy waiting, but I'd rather not have DBAs and developers calling me while it reports the wrong usage.
