Compound turbo boost & egt guages?

This may be a dumb question. I was wondering for the people that have compound turbos, do you run two boost and egt guages or just one of each? I would think that one egt guage on the small charger would work, but what about the boost guage?
Thanks,

Run one for the large charger first stage, one for the second stage output, then run your EGT into the exhaust header.

doesnt hurt to have some backpressure gauges on there too. at least temporary for testing purposes.
