There are many technical challenges to overcome in achieving optimal load balancing, such as being able to predict not just future workload patterns but the actual completion times of work already distributed, as well as the the availability of additional capacity subsequent to work completion. Ideally a load balancer would like to estimate when capacity is likely to be sufficiently freed up on...
