Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-757) crypto:md5 vs erlang:md5
Date Tue, 04 May 2010 16:12:55 GMT
crypto:md5 vs erlang:md5
------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-757
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-757
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
         Environment: GNU/Linux
            Reporter: Filipe Manana
         Attachments: crypto_md5.patch

Just noticed that crypto:md5 is faster than erlang:md5 by about an order of magnitude when
hashing just 8Kb or 4Kb of data.
Basically we use md5 hashing when writing and reading documents and attachments through couch_file
and couch_stream.

I know there's a ticket around with the goal of the possibility to remove the dependency on
the crypto module, but for environments where this is not a problem it would be a plus.

Made a test that wrote 400 attachments with about 60Kbs and noticed an average response time
of 0.16s versus 0.18s (erlang:md5).
