19.2.18. Multicore configuration

By default, the model starts up with a single processor 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 model 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, used with the multicore option, results in a visualization window as in Figure 19.4.
