Re: Does hadoop depends on ecc memory to generate checksum for data stored in HDFS
While the HDFS functionality of computing, storing and validating
checksums for block files does not specifically _require_ ECC, you do
_want_ ECC to avoid frequent checksum failures.

This is noted in Tom's book as well, in the chapter that discusses
setting up your own cluster:
"ECC memory is strongly recommended, as several Hadoop users have
reported seeing many checksum errors when using non-ECC memory on
Hadoop clusters."
