Generating view matrices for multiple glazing apertures in Radiance?

I want to generate view matrices for each of the 6 separate windows in a room with rfluxmtx. I wonder what is the best practice to do so?

Should I put the window I'm interested in in a "GlazingVmtx.rad" file, run someting like

rfluxmtx -v -I+ -ab 4 -ad 5000 -lw 0.0002 -n 16 -y 100 - objects/GlazingVmtx.rad -i octrees/room3ph.oct < points.txt > matrices/vmtx/v.mtx

, and include the information of other windows in the octree file?

Or, can I put the information of all the windows in one rad file (for example, GlazingVmtx.rad), but only set the window I am interested in as a glow type?

Thanks in advance.
