Both of these approaches have been extensively discussed and analyzed on this list, with very good and clear explanations (most by Solar) as to why they are bad solutions. Please use a site like http://www.gmane.org to research this list's history and find the posts discussing parallelization. I could paraphrase them, but a primary source is always best. Presuming you have a reasonable LAN between your nodes, your best bet is still probably the MPI patchset I pointed out earlier. Please be aware that clustering an app like this is non-trivial; hopefully you're familiar with setting up clustered environments. FWIW: if you're trying to enforce password complexity, doing it this way is what one might call "the tail wagging the dog" - most LDAP systems have the ability to set and enforce password complexity rules. -- To unsubscribe, e-mail john-users-unsubscribe@...ts.openwall.com and reply to the automated confirmation request that will be sent to you.
