Signoz suggest best practise for collector which is below::

Horizontally scale otel-collector which works on the push model and not otel-collector-metrics which works on the pull model of prometheus scraping. You need to add a different config to add another instance of otel-collector-metrics to prevent duplication

Any tutorial or article for above operation. Or any suggestion how to do it.

Horizontally scaling still causes one of the otel collectors to use up max cpu and max memory while the others barely use any. Is there anything I can do here
