SCTP (Multiple association vs multiple connections)

Hi Folks,

I have a question about SCTP association, is it okay to multiple connections and not multiple associations, for example,

Let's say I have node A that needs to connect to STP A and STP B, is it okay to connecto Node A to STP A and STP B with two separate SCTP association instead of one connection to STB A and STP B with two association IDs.

case 1, connection to the two STP with two different associations
Node-A ---Association 1 association ID 1----> STP-A
Node-A ---Association 2 association ID 1----> STP-A

case 2, the regular one, one SCTP connection with two association IDs
Node-A ---Association 1 association ID 1----> STP-A
Node-A ---Association 1 association ID 2----> STP-A

please never mind the secondary connections, in both cases they are there, the reason I'm asking this is because I wanna know if the association ID is something internal to Node A and it won't affect the performance.
