Earlier in your message you wrote: "Is there something I SHOULD be  
doing with my .log files?"
... and this is pretty much what I am doing with mine: determining,  
which rules successfully crack hashes, and for how long they are  
running. This is, of course, "post mortem", not "ahead of time" as you  
desire it, but it works for me.

Just be aware that the .log indicates rules AFTER john's rule  
processor, NOT the rules in john.conf.
