I’m in the process of familiarizing myself with golang and realized I’m unhappy with how my find performance has scaled with recent hardware innovation(radical SSD performance, multicore). So I saw this as an opportunity to explore the nifty channels & goroutines available in golang. After playing around a bit with different strategies I found that I could get a significant speedup if a grabbed the root directory and simply spawned a goroutine(find) for each subdirectory of root. I decided to name it ‘gofind’.
So if you’re unhappy with your systemwide(or just large) finds despite having the latest hardware give gofind a try!
Once I figure out how to get at syscalls used by find like fts_open() and such maybe I can improve the performance for even better finds.
