Getting access to checksums.

I'm currently working on a system that monitors file changes.
I'd like to calculate the checksums on each file both to see if a change
has occured as well as looking for duplicate files.
I'm not sure what algorithm I'll end up using but I was wondering if it
was possible to get access to ZFS' checksumming?
Does it happen on a file level or is it block level only? And if it
does, is there an easy way to obtain this information from the system?
