xxhash

GoDoc Build Status

xxhash is a Go implementation of the 64-bit xxHash algorithm, XXH64. This is a high-quality hashing algorithm that is much faster than anything in the Go standard library.

This package provides a straightforward API:

func Sum64(b []byte) uint64
func Sum64String(s string) uint64
type Digest struct{ ... }
    func New() *Digest

The Digest type implements hash.Hash64. Its key methods are:

func (*Digest) Write([]byte) (int, error)
func (*Digest) WriteString(string) (int, error)
func (*Digest) Sum64() uint64

This implementation provides a fast pure-Go implementation and an even faster assembly implementation for amd64.

Benchmarks

Here are some quick benchmarks comparing the pure-Go and assembly implementations of Sum64.

These numbers were generated on Ubuntu 18.04 with an Intel i7-8700K CPU using the following commands under Go 1.11.2:

$ go test -tags purego -benchtime 10s -bench '/xxhash,direct,bytes'
$ go test -benchtime 10s -bench '/xxhash,direct,bytes'
