It would work if you let those john's run in the foreground (as long as you run just one at a time anyway), but apparently you background them (such as by ending the shell commands with "&")? > Also, I will update my script to execute 3 john instances per time > since I have 4 cores Why not run 4 instances then (or even 8 in case you also have 2 logical CPUs per core, which is common)? If you're worried about impact on your computer's interactive response time, then the "Idle = Y" setting (default) should take care of that just fine. Be sure to use separate --session names for the 4 instances. > and make sure to send killall -HUP john I load 3 new... Sorry, I don't understand what you mean here. The HUP is only needed right before you query the --status. Alexander
