checkit is a file integrity tool that adds basic data assurance capabilities to file systems which support extended attributes. It allows you to detect any data integrity issues or file changes to any file. By storing a checksum as an extended attribute, checkit provides an efficient way to detect silent data corruption, bit rot, or other modification errors. It was inspired by the checksumming performed by filesystems like BTRFS and ZFS. Checkit allows similar functionality, the ability to compare stored files and entire directory trees against a checksum at a glance.
