Intelligent Storage Acceleration Library
ISA-L is a collection of optimized low-level functions targeting storage applications. ISA-L includes: * Erasure codes - Fast block Reed-Solomon type erasure codes for any encode/decode matrix in GF(2^8). * CRC - Fast implementations of cyclic redundancy check. Six different polynomials supported. - iscsi32, ieee32, t10dif, ecma64, iso64, jones64. * Raid - calculate and operate on XOR and P+Q parity found in common RAID implementations. * Compression - Fast deflate-compatible data compression. * De-compression - Fast inflate-compatible data compression.
x86_64: * Assembler: nasm v2.11.01 or later (nasm v2.13 or better suggested for building in AVX512 support) or yasm version 1.2.0 or later. * Compiler: gcc, clang, icc or VC compiler.
aarch64: * Assembler: gas v2.24 or later. * Compiler: gcc v4.7 or later.
other: * Compiler: Portable base functions are available that build with most C compilers.
To build and install the library with autotools it is usually sufficient to run:
./autogen.sh ./configure make sudo make install
To use a standard makefile run:
make -f Makefile.unx
On Windows use nmake to build dll and static lib:
nmake -f Makefile.nmake
Other targets include: *
make check: create and run tests *
make tests: create additional unit tests *
make perfs: create included performance tests *
make ex: build examples *
make other: build other utilities such as compression file tests *
make doc: build API manual
