Multiple Connectors for one tunnel

I’m just wondering if there’s any benefit to running multiple connectors for one tunnel?

For reference, I have a primary hostname that all of my services are configured for through CF Tunnels, via an Nginx Proxy Manager. I have multiple machines that these services are spanned across, with the ability to run 3 seperate Cloudflared Docker Connectors, one on each host.

Is there any benefit to doing this? One of my nodes is only exposed to my WAN2 outbound, or WAN1 outbound for another, with the current tunnel being on a node that’s permitted for all routing.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

The main one is that it allows you to restart containers without downtime.
