My OpenCL RAR format runs for very long per crypt_all() call: One call can take half a minute or much more (though I'm hoping to do better). The upshot is that it may contain thousands of candidates, or hundreds of thousands, or more. But the self-tests just tries one hash, crypts, tries another one, calls crypt, etc. which make the self-test take forever (since one hash takes just as long to do as half a million of them). I had to comment out the fmt_self_test(format) call from benchmark_format() (but left the benchmark in place) just to be able to work on my format. I do not have any particular proposition though. Any ideas? This format is extreme but I think the problem is noticable with most other GPU formats too. Just disabling self-test with a flag would be easy but that's not a good solution - we need the tests. Maybe we could have a flag that tells john to collate all tests into just one or two calls to crypt_all()? magnum
