  • Info on output and tuning, from Waffle: "line" is the line number in the current file. It's not random - it reads a "memory chunk" of data from the file, then breaks that into lines (so there will be a lot of lines if each line is a very short password, and there will be fewer lines if each line is a long password). It increases as block of lines is run through all of the algorithms specified (might be just one algorithm, or you might have access them all).

  • Take the line number you see, and back up a few thousand (just for good measure, as there's no way to know exactly which line it was on as the comfort messages update about every 15 seconds, and mdxfind can process millions per second), and use that in the -w for the next run.

  • The w= argument shows how "busy" mdxfind is. If you have a lot of cores, this number can be very high. It is actually the number of work units waiting in the queue to be processed, where each work unit is an algorithm and block of lines to be processed. If you are using a simple algorithm, like MD5, most times MDXfind will out-pace the speed of your disk, and w= will be a very low number. Doing a "hard" algorithm like MD5DSALT, or BCRYPT for example, this number will be high, meaning that your hard drive is able to produce data faster than the algorithms can consume it.
