(IIRC, every 10 minutes.) John also stores the current state in the .rec file and logs the progress in the .log file. (john.rec and john.log being the default, unless you use --session=session_name.) just tail -f the log file and john.pot for progress info, or use john --show pwfile or john --status [ --session=session_name ] If you want to see the current status, and not one which is up to 10 minutes old, use kill -s 1 pid_of_john_session before using john --show pwfile.
