The short answer is no.
It depends on your application.
Run them all on the same weight for a while and see how they get
loaded, then decide if you need to play with the weights or just add
In a layer 4 balanced cluster I normally recommend no greater than 40%
utilisation as a rule of thumb to cope with peaks in demand.
