I don't have a specific session value for my brute-force so I don't know if it does difference, but john --status give the progress status. At the moment I'm using a simple shell script just to call john in loop with all combinations of Korelogic rules... Also, there is a way to see the current password tested as we see pressing "enter"? As john is being called by a shell script the enter doesn't work too. Also, I will update my script to execute 3 john instances per time since I have 4 cores and make sure to send killall -HUP john I load 3 new... Thanks.
