Welcome to the forum. Bruteforce is dead, unless you're trying to crack DES passwords from an old Linux machine. (Such passwords only had 56-bits of entropy because crypt() would only basically take the user provided password, truncate it to the first eight characters, and then cram the first 7-bits of each character into a buffer; thereby creating a password which only had 56-bits of entropy.)

In general, either stick to dictionary attacks with word mangling, or use an existing password dump and perform a search using the most common passwords in that dump. For such cases, Hashcat is decent if you have GPUs available, and John the Ripper can be used as a CPU-intensive alternative. I have not found either to be great at clustered/distributed cracking across many devices on the same network, but I also haven't tried particularly hard as I use them solely for hobbyist exploration, so running on one machine isn't a huge limitation for me.
