Yes, and that's exactly what the Fletcher4+verify combo does (Fletcher is faster than CRC32). That's why I started this thread - to assess whether a better hash algorithm is needed and/or desired. -- Saso _______________________________________________ zfs-discuss mailing list email@example.com http://mail.opensolaris.org/mailman/listinfo/zfs-discuss
