About

Cross-platform (any computer with Java), IntegrityChecker Java runs SHA512 hashes on files to maintain data integrity checks. All professionals should be using it to validate their data. Especially when random “land mine” bugs in new macOS releases pop up, such as macOS Finder silent data-loss risks and outright bugs when copying files.

Or bad memory or bit rot (rare but real), etc.

The verify command of diglloydTools IntegrityChecker utilizes all CPU cores as efficiently as any application ever can, using sophisticated I/O algorithms to feed data to the CPU as fast as the OS can go. Performance will thus be gated by I/O speed unless all CPU cores are fed data fast enough to be fully utilized.

Results

The 2019 Mac Pro can hash at 12+ GB/sec on a faster SSD, but its results as shown here are on its Apple internal SSD, which maxes-out at ~3.4GB/sec.

Although the results look similar to the iMacs; the 2021 MacBook Pro M1 Max is limited not by its SSD, but by its hashing speed. The iMac can actually do 6-7GB/sec if only they had a faster SSD.

Graph is MiB/sec (multiply by 1.0485 for MB/sec).
