Skip checksum for speed

hi all,

does it make sense to let the importer calculate the checksum if the image-folder lies on another machine?
(I mount’ed it to my local machine)

best regards

@And for the typical large imaging datasets generated these days, either large number of files and/or large files, skipping checksumming can quickly become necessary. This is on the more true when data is imported in-place via symlinks and there is no file copying.

The bin/omero import command line includes a --skip=checksum option which will effectively use a trivial file size calculation for the checksumming. Taking IDR as an example, files are in-place imported and the checksumming is always skipped - see https://github.com/IDR/idr0052-walther-condensinmap/blob/79f269ea5d0ef8782f10dbb43595832b02cdf2ac/experimentA/idr0052-experimentA-bulk.yml#L5.
