3.9 Multicore configuration

By default, the platform starts up with a single core that begins executing from the entry point in the last provided ELF image, or address 0 if no ELF images are provided.

You can configure the platform using --cores=N to have up to four processor cores. Each core starts executing the same set of images, starting at the same address. The --visualization command-line option which is used with the multicore option, results in a visualization window.
