    I am using nearly 10 config files to keep different configuration details for one application. I am worried about the performance  because of filewatcher created by Enterprise library. is there any way to control the file watcher? is there any improvement on this part in the Entlib 5.0?

The behavior of the configuration file watcher is currently isn't something configurable.  My idea is to create a custom configuration source which will just basically copy the existing FileConfigurationSource's functionality.  You can check out the Enterprise Library 5.0 Extensibility Labs as it contains hands-on-lab on how to create a custom config source.
