Multiple Async Fpolicy Policies - Performance Impact


I'm using Ontap C-Mode 9.8 and have a single async FPolicy policy to send events to an External Fpolicy engine. The software that receives the FPolicy events simply uses it to gather stats on the events and does not block events hence use of async on the policy

I now have a requirement to send the same events to another fpolicy collector/external engine. My understanding is I cannot simply add another server to the existing external engine as any additional primary servers will simply be used in a  round robin manner. As such, I think the only option is to create a new policy/external-engine.


As these policies will be async and avoid noisy events such as getfileattr is this a say config from a performance impact point of view?
