    Round robin. Didn't think I would have to change the LB algorithm. I
    thought I could simply use one of bigip's several features.

    Well, what method are you using? If you want a every node to receive an
    even amount of traffic, round robin will do that for you. However,
    round robin will pass traffic to that node whether or not it is
    performing well. Least connections is another method that will
    eventually even out the traffic among the nodes as well...
