workflows

Would like to know the workflow performance Tuning, For example we can write multiple field updates in one workflow or we can write multiple workflows for each field updates, Complicated conditions can be provided in both the ways. But, this matters while execution therefore am curious to know best practice and impact on the Execution Context it will take for each work flow, And if there are any max out time if i create N number of workflows or 1 work flow with N number of field updates?

Thanks in Advance

I personally prefer creating one workflow with mulitple actions vs N number of workflows with individual actions.

If you are doing multiple field update actions.. It means you assign the new values to all the fields and you do only one update statement.
