7.1.5. Synchronized stepping, cross-triggering, and skid

Synchronized execution applies to the stepping of processor groups, stopping them, and starting them. Having a target with closely synchronized processors enables you to step through the code to examine, for example, memory or registers on different processors. However, the behavior of each processor in the processor group during synchronized stepping operations depends on:

A synchronized low-level step into operation in the Disassembly tab is always predictable. However, because of skid, the other synchronized stepping operations might not behave in a predictable, or expected, way. These synchronized stepping operations can be unpredictable in the following circumstances:
