vip and heavy forwarder setup for HEC

Can I use the same HEC token on all HF's which are behind a VIP and set up clients to send data to VIP ip?
The purpose is to keep HF's conf the same and share the load.
Is it a good idea?

Sure you can.

They might all appear to come from the same host if you don't enable SNAT (source network address translation) on the VIP.
