Dhrystone on LPC4300 series

Hello all,

I am interested in applying benchmarks on LPC43xx series.  Recently I found this link:  https://community.nxp.com/thread/420583 
In this post," Content originally posted in LPCWare by jokn on Thu Jan 03 05:08:31 MST 2013" - in his post, he mentions that dhrystone was made to run 1 million runs. My question is: So, did M4 and M0 runs together here ? I mean, is parallel programming done here? Dhrystone is a benchmark with integer calculations for computer systems. Hence , Is that 1 million run divided between the m0 core and m4 core ? If yes,how was it achieved ? If no, did only m4 work?

Thank you soledad  It shows that the dhrystone/coremark both the benchmarks runs in parallel on the individual cores but they do not communicate.  For eg: In dhrystone , if  there are , 1 million calculations. The number 1 million is not divided for both the cores (M4 and M0 does not take half-million each and calculate),but instead each core runs the 1 million calculation  separately on them .  The code for m4 and m0 core runs on them separately.  Hence the task is not divided for two cores and the results are communicated via IPC. Instead, they both work on same task as their own individual task. The two individual DMIPS are added. Am I right ?
