Re: HDFS dfs.client.read.shortcircuit.skip.checksum
Hi LiuLei,

Since you're using CDH3 (a 1.x derived distribution) you are using the old
checksum implementations written in Java.

In Hadoop 2.0 (or CDH4), we have JNI-based checksumming which uses
Nehalem's hardware CRC support. This is several times faster.

My guess is that this accounts for the substantial difference. You could
try re-running your test on a newer version to confirm.
