You can use tools from PACK (Password Analysis and Cracking Kit) to
generate lists of masks, then distribute masks between your machines.

You can also use them to analyze your pot files.

The catch is - the tools are designed for hashcat, you'll need to put in
some work to use then with JtR, but it's not impossible.

Best regards,
