Here are a few sample tests: 1) mpirun -np 1 /JTR/john -test -format:DES (master - 1.3 Ghz G4) Benchmarking: Traditional DES [128/128 BS AltiVec]... DONE Many salts: 620108 c/s real, 635357 c/s virtual Only one salt: 566553 c/s real, 571122 c/s virtual 2) mpirun -nolocal -np 1 /JTR/john -test -format:DES (single 1.8 Ghz G5 CPU) Benchmarking: Traditional DES [128/128 BS AltiVec]... DONE Many salts: 1011K c/s real, 1013K c/s virtual Only one salt: 877721 c/s real, 883019 c/s virtual 3) mpirun -np 4 /JTR/john -test -format:DES (3-1.8 Ghz G5, 1-1.3 Ghz G4 CPUs) Benchmarking: Traditional DES [128/128 BS AltiVec]... DONE Many salts: 3636K c/s real, 3680K c/s virtual Only one salt: 3185K c/s real, 3217K c/s virtual mpirun -np 4 /JTR/john -test -format:LM (3-1.8 Ghz G5, 1-1.3 Ghz G4 CPUs) Benchmarking: NT LM DES [128/128 BS AltiVec]... DONE Raw: 21537K c/s real, 21876K c/s virtual mpirun -np 4 /JTR/john -test -format:MD5 (3-1.8 Ghz G5, 1-1.3 Ghz G4 CPUs) Benchmarking: FreeBSD MD5 [32/32 X2]... DONE Raw: 13610 c/s real, 13824 c/s virtual Really makes a difference on the MD5 crunching. I have tested this version of john running against hash files with no success. While the hash crack faster, the master instance of john doesn't shut down until I do a kill -9 on the process. The password is then revealed. This might be a bug, but I am not sure. I am running MPICH. Erik On May 31, 2006, at 11:34 PM, Otheus (aka Timothy J. Shelling) wrote: > This is a (beta) patch for John 1.7.2 for use with MPI.
