2.4 SMP support

Model Shell provides Symmetric MultiProcessing support. It can be simple or standard.

Simple
This is only suitable for model systems that have one SMP cluster. The same application is loaded in all cores.
model_shell -m smp_model.so -a app.axf
Standard
This is suitable for all cases and uses the -a option to list the applications for each core.
Use the full instance name of each core.
model_shell -m smp_model.so -a multiprocessor.processor0=app1.axf -a multiprocessor.processor1=app2.axf
In addition to loading individual applications for each core, the -a option also enables loading the same application in all cores.
Replace the index of the core with *.
model_shell -m smp_model.so -a multiprocessor.processor*=app.axf
model_shell -m smp_model.so -a "multiprocessor.*"=app.axf

Note

On Unix, the * character requires escape quotes.
