Verifying AES-NI Support

To verify that a client host is ready to use the AES-NI instruction set optimization for HDFS encryption, use the following command:

hadoop checknative

You should see a response similar to the following:

15/08/12 13:48:39 INFO bzip2.Bzip2Factory: Successfully loaded & initialized native-bzip2 library system-native
14/12/12 13:48:39 INFO zlib.ZlibFactory: Successfully loaded & initialized native-zlib library
Native library checking:
hadoop:  true /usr/lib/hadoop/lib/native/
zlib:    true /lib64/
snappy:  true /usr/lib64/
lz4:     true revision:99
bzip2:   true /lib64/
openssl: true /usr/lib64/

If you see true in the openssl row, Hadoop has detected the right version of and optimization will work.

If you see false in this row, you do not have the correct version.
