MD5 throughput was ~15 GBytes/minute on a quad core Intel i5 @ 2.67GHz running Ubuntu Linux 10.04 and Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_22-b04) Java HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 17.1-b03, mixed mode)

The throughput was the same whether the digest was computed from bytes on disk or memory. org.apache.commons.codec.digest.DigestUtils org.apache.commons.codec.binary.Hex

is = new DigestInputStream( new BufferedInputStream(new FileInputStream(filename)), MessageDigest.getInstance("MD5")); /* * Implementations using DigestInputStream would not need the byte handling as it would be just one filter in a pipe * that is being pumped for some other purpose. */ final byte[] buf = new byte[2048]; while ( == -1) …
