Smart-1 5050 best practice guidance

We are currently looking at deploying 3 Smart-1 5050 Mgmt svr appliances in an Active/standby/standby posture. We've been looking through the checkpoint documentation looking for guidance on how best to use the multiple network interfaces (1 mgmt and 3 others Gig ports). Specifically of concern is what is the dedicated Mgmt port to be used for? Is it just for smart console to access the Mgmt server? if so the Mgmt server object IP will be tied to the dedicated Mgmt interface? If that's the case how can we best use the 3 other Gig interfaces......How can we establish SIC with a remote gateway through the other interfaces if the Mgmt server IP is tied to the dedicated Mgmt port.....Just looking for best practice and maybe some recommended architectures that best use all 4 ports.
