The traditional native diglloydTools DMG can be downloaded separately here (no changes):


2020-01-21: IntegrityChecker java v1.3b11

About the only issue that is coming up is permissions and security issues—files and folders that cannot be read because of permissions, ownership, being locked, etc along with other oddball cases like problem files being in legacy ".ic" files.

Accordingly, this releases now uses java.nio instead of java.io for iterating over folders and files, which exposes certain types of special cases more clearly. Defensive code with better reporting for problem files/folders is included.

2020-01-20: IntegrityChecker java v1.3b7

See previous notes also.

This release incorporates help for every command and integrates it with web site pages, opening them automatically. For example, “icj help verify” will open the web page for online help.

2020-01-20: IntegrityChecker java v1.3b6

See previous notes. This minor update fixes two things:

  • The install script install-icj.sh is fixed to be runnable from any directory (no need to 'cd' to directory containing the script).
  • the help summary for "clean" now shows the "--ic" option.

----- icj download removed, use most current version -----

NOTE: if desired, download the diglloydTools dmg disk image from the Dec 26 entry below, but replace its icj with the version here.


2020-01-19: IntegrityChecker java v1.3b5
More performance, better handling of special files, automated installation on macOS

Standalone release of IntegrityChecker java version 1.3b5. Download the full Dec 26 release of diglloydTools first if the DiskTester and MemoryTester tools are desired.

This is a beta version which will likely be a formal non-beta release shortly.

NOTE: for full speed benefit (use of SHA-512), the following procedure is advised:

1. First verify your data on your various folders or volumes:

icj update; icj verify

Then assuming all looks good, do a 'clean' (removes hash files) and then 'update', which will hash with SHA-512:

icj clean; icj update

----- icj download removed, use most current version -----

2020-01-06: IntegrityChecker java v1.2b2
Major Performance Improvement with SHA-512

Standalone release of IntegrityChecker java version 1.1b10. Download the full Dec 26 release first if the DiskTester and MemoryTester tools are desired.

No change to native version. New features:

1) Backwards compatible with older versions that used SHA1

2) Various small tweaks

2) fixes issue with symbolic links.

3) Version 1.2b2 builds on the major performance improvements of IntegrityChecker version 1.1b10 by adding support for SHA-512 hashing. [Speed is now so fast that IntegrityChecker Java will be I/O limited on recent Macs, even by the extremely fast internal SSDs. There is some actual speed benefit, but given the icj is now I/O bound, the is an about 80% reduction in CPU usage.

This is a beta version. Its is backward compatible with prior versions but prior versions are not forward-compatible with updated folders due to thchange to SHA-512 as the default hashing algorithm.

NOTE: for full speed benefit (use of SHA-512), the following procedure is advised:

1. First verify your data on your various folders or volumes:

icj update; icj verify

2020-01-03: Major performance improvements to IntegrityChecker java

Standalone release of IntegrityChecker java version 1.1b10. Download the full Dec 26 release first if the DiskTester and MemoryTester tools are desired.

No change to native version.

New features:

1) Numerous small enhancedments.

2) Performance has been further improved, including faster concurrent loading of stored hash files.

3) the 'dupes' command supports options for files over a specified size and for a list of file types eg:
icj dupes --size 32K
icj dupes --types RAW # all raw file types
icj dupes --types DNG,ARW,CR2,CR3,NEF

4) Hashing speed can be directly checked for your particular machine. This is a prelude to an update which will offer higher performance hashing and is otherwise of no particular use for end users.
icj sha
icj sha --size 1M --iterations 1000 -sha sha1

This is a beta version. Its is backward compatible with prior versions but prior versions are not forward-compatible with updated folders due to the addition of missing folder support. In other words, do not run older versions once this version updates folders.

Version 2.2.15, December 26, 2019

IntegrityChecker java version 1.1b1

No change to native version.

New features:

- Folders are now tracked, so that if an entire folder anywhere in the hieararchy goes missing, a warning is emitted.

- the 'dupes' command is now much more useful. It emits 'rm' commands that can be copied/pasted in Terminal to remove unwanted duplicate files. Use these commands with care, since icj cannot know for sure which duplicate should be considered the primary. However, an apparent primary is selected by date and intelligent use of the name.

Java version of IntegrityChecker (icj) has been optimized for extreme performance:

- Total throughput hits nearly 3 gigabytes per second on fast 8-core Macs such on an 2019 iMac 5K or 2019 MacBook Pro (assuming a very fast SSD such as the internal SSD). It is now fast enough that CPU power on 12 core or more machines should outrun SSD speed, that is, icj is I/O bound unless an SSD can deliver 4GB/sec or more.

- Throughput both for mixed-size files and large files is now very close to the limits of SSD speed (as tested on 2018 iMac 5K 8-core on its fast internal SSD)

- A performance bug is now fixed that resulted in unpredictable 2X to 3X performance losses on the same workload (instantiation of threads in thread pool was not being triggered reliably).

- Performance on hard drives has been improved by up to 3X. Due to API limitations, hard drives still do not perform as well as hoped. The NUM_IO_BUFFERS configuration parameter in the icj script file should be reduced to 4 buffers for better performance (more than a small number of buffers degrade performance on hard drives, but are esential for SSD performance). Change -DNUM_IO_BUFFERS=0 to -DNUM_IO_BUFFERS=4 for improved performance on hard drives.

This is a beta version. Its is backward compatible with prior versions but prior versions are not forward-compatible with updated folders due to the addition of missing folder support. In other words, do not run older versions once this version updates folders.

----- icj download removed, use most current version -----

...

Note: Install-cmd-line-tools.app does not work, use this in Terminal:
sudo /Applications/diglloydTools/spt/make_links.sh

Version 2.2.15, December 30, 2017

Same as Dec 24 release except that icj (Java version of IntegrityChecker) has been optimized for much higher performance.

----- icj download removed, use most current version -----

Version 2.2.15, December 24, 2017

Rebuilt on macOS 10.13.2 and optimized IntegrityChecker for extremely fast SSDs. See release notes.
