IntegrityChecker Java (icj) version 2.0.2
IntegrityChecker Java version 2.0.2 is now available for download. This release is a minor update.
- 2022-01-02 Updated installJava.sh to install JDK 17.0.1, including choosing the Intel or Apple Silicon variant automatically.
- 2022-01-01 Changed the 'sha' command to test hashing speed for a variety of thread counts, emitting a summary table when done. Can be used to characterize performance on different machines and/or tune performance expectations.
- 2021-12-20 Added SHOW_RECENT_THROUGHPUT flag, which governs whether to show throughput over the past 5000 I/O requests, typically 3-5 seconds on fast SSD.
- 2021-10-26 Changed the purge code (if invoked with 'sudo') to purge *at least* every N seconds rather than waiting N seconds after the prior purge. Better steady-state purging results. Added milliseconds to the "P" suffix when purges occur.

5. Enter the following, then press the RETURN key:
6. Respond to the install questions, etc.
Installing on macOS — security permissions
