Oh, and OMP_NUM_THREAD was a typo (should be OMP_NUM_THREADS). A better example would be: OMP_NUM_THREADS=3 ./john -te=1 -fo=des Also, GOMP_SPINCOUNT may need to be tuned on a particular system. I recommend testing these values: 10000, 100000, 300000 (gcc 4.6.0+ default), 3000000, 10000000. No need to fine-tune it, so testing these 5 values should be enough. Alexander
