Starting with the Nehalam series, Intel processors feature the Streaming SIMD Extensions instruction set which provide a hardware-accelerated version of the CRC-32 algorithm (Castagnoli variant). This library uses the Intel SSE 4.2 instruction set to provide a fast CRC-32C implementation.

features

  • Intel Streaming SIMD Extensions 4.2 based hardware-accelerated CRC-32C calculation
  • Graceful fallback to software-based CRC-32C (table-based CRC calculation)
  • Supports streams, strings and buffers

performance

The tests were run on a Macbook Air running an Intel Core i7 processor, with 16GB of RAM and used buffers instead of strings to prevent having items on the V8 heap that might cause the garbage collector to fire frequently and interfere with the test run-times.

Below are the results from the 2 test cases:

> node benchmark

single fixed-size buffer, 10000 iterations:
- Native SSE 4.2 CRC-32C: 4.319142 ms
- Native Table-based CRC-32C: 10.726345 ms
- JavaScript (table-based) CRC-32C: 60.704765 ms
- JavaScript (direct) CRC-32C: 336.376904 ms


multiple random-length buffers, 10000 iterations:
- Native SSE 4.2 CRC-32C: 60.194043 ms
- Native Table-based CRC-32C: 225.459861 ms
- JavaScript (table-based) CRC-32C: 1786.079168 ms
- JavaScript (direct) CRC-32C: 12307.033387 ms

installation

Use the following command to install the library from npm:

npm install --save sse4_crc32

usage

Import the module:

const Sse4Crc32 = require("sse4_crc32")

Calculate the 32-bit CRC for any string:

const crc = Sse4Crc32.calculate("my string")

Instead of passing in a string, a buffer can be passed to the calculate() function. Furthermore, the calculate() function takes an optional initialCrc value as the second argument, allowing for progressive CRC calculation.

const crc = Sse4Crc32.calculate("my string")
const newCrc = Sse4Crc32.calculate("my new string", crc)

You can also calculate the CRC for streams, as follows:

const stream = Sse4Crc32
  .fromStream(fs.createReadStream('/path/to/file'))
  .on('finish', () => console.log(`CRC-32C: ${stream.crc}`))

how to compile

Once the repository has been cloned, use one of the following commands to build the library:

make all            // Builds the release version of the library and runs all tests
make debug          // Builds the debug version of the library
make clean          // Removes all files generated by builds
