If you know your dictionary, and it fits in memory, simply use -mem=filesize (plus a little). So if the dictionary is 800mb, simply do -mem=850000000. This makes a -rules run, go much faster. I use to throw in a --mem=0 all the time, unless the dictionary is humongous. >>> --config=FILE use FILE instead of john.conf or john.ini >> >> OK.
