It should be a lot better since I merged that self-test timing patch a week ago or so. Maybe we see problems now that were hidden before. > First point, which one is the real number? Please take a look in  and . > My test vector is not that bad comparing to --incremental mode. Or is it? Per definition, the real crack gives the real figure. If they differ it may be due to things like test vector length not matching the IRL run (in case the format suffers significantly from length) or if the IRL hash does not use 5000 iterations. If that's not it, I'm not sure. > I need some advice since auto-tunning code have to show "the" speed. > > : > claudio@...l:~/unstable/src$ ../run/john -fo:sha256crypt-opencl ~/sha256 -inc --max-run-time=600 > OpenCL platform 0: NVIDIA CUDA, 1 device(s). > Using device 0: GeForce GTX 570 > Building the kernel, this could take a while > Local work size (LWS) 128, global work size (GWS) 23040 > guesses: 0 time: 0:00:11:40 0.00% c/s: 19753 trying: tui1194 - sidgsb > Session stopped (max run-time reached) Why do I not see any "Loaded x hashes with y different salts" in the above? > : > claudio@...l:~/claudio/src$ ../run/john -fo:sha256crypt-opencl -t > OpenCL platform 0: NVIDIA CUDA, 1 device(s). > Using device 0: GeForce GTX 570 > Building the kernel, this could take a while > Local work size (LWS) 128, global work size (GWS) 23040 > Benchmarking: sha256crypt (rounds=5000) [OpenCL]...
