Disk Usage

Hash Suite 3.5 database file with 1 million NTLM hashes and 1 million LM hashes: 80MB

CPU/GPU Usage

All hashes were randomly generated. The programs are sorted by average performance in first 4 columns. Performance is reported in hashes computed per second. For non-salted hashes (LM, NTLM, MD5, SHA1, SHA256, SHA512), this is the same as candidate passwords tested per second. For salted hashes (DCC, DCC2, SSHA, MD5CRYPT, BCRYPT, SHA256CRYPT, SHA512CRYPT, WPA-PSK), this is the number of candidate passwords tested per second multiplied by the number of hashes (all of which use different salts in these benchmarks). Results for salted hashes (where said multiplication was applied) are marked with asterisks (*).

Note: Demo version of PPA only permits 10 accounts.
Note: Hash Suite and Hashcat can treat the CPU as an OpenCL device (providing in many cases better performance), but unlike other CPU programs benchmarked here, it would require an OpenCL driver.
Note: John the Ripper uses a smart mode that tries more probable candidate passwords first. Other programs use a dumb mode for brute-force.
Note: John the Ripper's multi-threading support is inefficient for fast hashes (all of those benchmarked here except for DCC2, MD5CRYPT, BCRYPT, SHA256CRYPT, SHA512CRYPT, WPA-PSK), so its performance for 4 threads is not much greater than for 1 thread; much better cumulative performance of 4 processes (rather than threads) may be achieved by using --fork=4 instead.
Note: Except for SHA256CRYPT and SHA512CRYPT, an older non-AVX2 build of John the Ripper is benchmarked here; a newer AVX2 build would be up to twice faster at some of the hash types.

Compressed Wordlists

Performance of the wordlist key-provider is tested to find which compressed wordlist formats are best using 1000 NTLM hashes with and without rules support. The "wikipedia-wordlist-sraveau-20090325" file is used as reference wordlist.

System Format File size With rules No rules
Core i5 plaintext 709MB 241 19.5
gz 174MB 233 9.97
zip 174MB 238 10.9
7z 154MB 228 5.01
bz2 212MB 216 2.72

For reference, the charset key-provider performs at 429 million of candidate passwords tested per second, so the wordlist key-provider with rules support has incredibly good performance (considering that it is more complicated). The use of rules with the wordlist key-provider and keeping the wordlists compressed in .gz or .zip format are highly recommended.

GPU Rules Performance

Performance of the wordlist key-provider with common rules using 1000 NTLM hashes. The "wikipedia-wordlist-sraveau-20090325" file is used as reference wordlist.
System Program Rules performance
Radeon HD 7970 Hash Suite 3.3 6600
oclHashcat 1.37 1514

For reference, the charset key-provider performs at 10.1 billion of candidate passwords tested per second, so the wordlist key-provider with rules support has incredibly good performance on GPU (considering that it is more complicated).
