Question on hostapd conf file

Hi all,

I have a AP which has 3 wireless interfaces ( wlan0, wlan1, wlan2) and each
interface can support 16 SSIDs.

Do we need to have as many hostapd.conf files as number of interfaces or
one conf file can be used to specify configuration for all 3 interfaces.

If multiple hostapd.conf are to be used, can one hostapd daemon read all
configuration files or does it require as many hostapd daemons as number of
configuration files?
