Using ISA-L for Erasure Coding

Intel Intelligent Storage Acceleration Library (ISA-L) is an open-source collection of optimized low-level functions used for storage applications. The library can improve Erasure Coding performance when the Reed-Solomon (RS) codecs are used.

Run the commands as specified to install the isa-l library.

            $ yum install gcc make autoconf automake libtool yasm git nasm
            $ git clone
            $ cd isa-l/
            $ ./
            $ ./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64
            $ make
            $ sudo make install

Verify NASM version and ISA-L

  1. Ensure NASM version is 2.11 or higher by running the command nasm -v.
  2. Verify ISA-L is working by running the command hadoop checknative.
