Thank you very much for getting back to my question magnum, I will use OpenGL then rather then CUDA directly :) Can I just confirm with you because it was a little unclear to me.. Using CUDA I cannot use CPU cores and GPU cores together unless a spawn multiple jobs.. Using OpenCL I can use both CPU cores and GPU cores, but per GPU card it will be with the addition of 1 extra process.. I.e: 48 CPU cores and 1 GPU card I would write -n 49 instead :) Thank you very much magnum :D Lovely to meet you as well :D > Kind regards, > Darren Wise Esq, > B.Sc, HND, GNVQ, City & Guilds. -------- Original message -------- From: magnum <john.magnum@...hmail.com> Date: 07/09/2016 20:45 (GMT+00:00) To: john-users@...ts.openwall.com Subject: Re: [john-users] JtR, MPI and CUDA+CPU core usage?

You should run one MPI process per GPU *card*. You can start another job using the remaining CPU cores on those machines plus all cores on machines that lack a GPU. I recommend using OpenCL (even for nvidia), not CUDA. Our OpenCL formats are way ahead of the CUDA ones, in number and in quality. magnum
