Can you please give me some tips on how to start integration?

I was working on enabling all cores to work with different key and setting.
I first tried to store key and setting in shared DRAM and read it from
there. For some reason it worked only for 2 cores. Other cores couldn't
retrieve correct value. I gave up that approach and stored key and setting
into each core local memory. Now execution speed is a bit higher -
292.021000 ms.
I have 16 calls to e_write to write key into local memory and than 16 more
to write setting.
