What about seeing status information of all the running john sessions in
one place?
Just run a script similar to the one attached here.
I barely tested the script, but it should work
on any unix-like system.
(I am not so sure about cygwin.)
Probably the same thing can be done easier than this.

For each session you'll see some output similar to this:
Session: john
guesses: 0  time: 0:00:10:00 0.00% (3)  c/s: 1085K
