Thank you for your answers.

One more question:

I'm trying to get 9 character pass (SHA512).
I'm using 1.7.9 with openMP and default settings.
Command line: ./john pass.txt

How much time it can take to decrypt such password?
Are there any restrictions for pass length or I can decrypt pass with any
length with default john settings?

Thanks
