Doc on alerting implementation arch. & scaling


I was looking for alerting architecture and scaling documentation if there is any.
I wanted to under that how would alerter scale with say 100 alerts/watches defined. What is the performance like etc.

Is there any documentation for that ? Elastic Alerter doc talks about shards where the number of ‘.watches’ shards determine the distributed execution of the alerts. Does the open distro alerting also follow the same implementation ?

Looking forward to some responses !
