[Numpy-discussion] checksum on numpy float array

My app reads in one or more float arrays from a binary file.

Sometimes due to network timeouts etc the array is not read correctly.

What would be the best way of checking the validity of the data?

Would some sort of checksum approach be a good idea?
Would that work with an array of floating point values?
Or are checksums more for int,byte,string type data?
