I wish to run multiple instances of
bitcoind on my server to support highly read intensive RPC applications.
suggests that by using different conf file and data dir we can run multiple instances.
However, my doubt is that since in each case, we are specifying different config file and data dir to same binary
bitcoind -datadir=./bitcoinNode1/ -conf=./bitcoinNode1/bitcoin.conf bitcoind -datadir=./bitcoinNode2/ -conf=./bitcoinNode2/bitcoin.conf bitcoind -datadir=./bitcoinNode3/ -conf=./bitcoinNode3/bitcoin.conf
Does same single binary
bitcoind is going to handle request for all instances (bitcoinNode1, bitcoinNode2, bitcoinNode3)? In such case load will be on single binary and I have a doubt for performance gain.
Or is it better to create different binaries
bitcoind2 etc. for each config+data_dir combo?
