I have a SSH private/public key pair that was recovered from another machine. I would like to generate another keypair using the same number of encryption rounds I used to make this one. Unfortunately I don't remember what that number was, but I do know it was not the default.

How to determine the number of encryption rounds for this key? That is, how to find out from the key files what value I passed to -a parameter of ssh-keygen when generating this key?

I do have the passphrase and can unlock this key with ssh-add , however the client machine being out of commission I am seeking a solution that doesn't involve making a SSH connection with this key.
