3.7.5. Symmetric Multi-Processing

Symmetric Multi-Processing (SMP) extensions are supported in ARMv7-A, but not in ARMv5. SMP is a software architecture that dynamically determines the roles of individual processors. Each core in the cluster has the same view of memory and shared hardware. Any application, process, or task, can run on any core. The operating system scheduler can dynamically migrate tasks among cores to achieve optimal system load.
