Avoiding Nginx restart when rsyncing cache across machines

I run a mini CDN for a static site by having Nginx cache machines (in
different locations) in front of the origin and load balanced by Cloudflare.

Periodically I run rsync pull to update the cache on each of these
machines. Works well, except that I realized I need to restart Nginx and
reload isn’t updating the cache in memory.

Really want to avoid the restart. Is this possible? Or maybe I am doing
something wrong here.
