Question regarding benchmark output
Good evening everybody,

I am looking at some hashcat benchmarks and i noticed that at the crypt function (e.g. md5crypt) it outputs the following

Hashtype: md5crypt, MD5(Unix), FreeBSD MD5, Cisco-IOS MD5

Workload: 1000 loops, 32 accel

Does the workload which is measured in loops have to do with the gpu-loops paramter or it means that we have 1000 ieterations of MD5 algorithm (i.e. MD5(MD5 ..... MD5(string) 1000s MD5s)?

Thank  you very much
In this case both, since md5crypt has exactly 1000 iterations. However what you see is the -u setting
Thank you very much for yous answer.

So this applies in general i guess? So simple hash functions such as below also have iterations right (e.g. 256 in the below code).l

Hashtype: SHA384

Workload: 256 loops, 256 accel

Have a nice day
No, it's only for slow hashes
Great Thank you very much
