Well, since there are multiple salts, you may split your input password files across nodes "by salt". That is, make sure that all hashes with a given salt go onto the same node. A more generic approach is to split the candidate password space, though, which can be done in one of many different ways. > Simon was so kind to send me his version of john with the markov mode. > and perhaps this is the way to get it work on the diverent cpus. I wouldn't say it is "the way" - it is just one of many ways, and it is specific to this mode. The choice is really up to you, especially given that you're doing this for fun (in my understanding), and you don't have to do it optimally.
