What is the current best practice to balance volumes across fileservers?

I'm aware of CMU's balance program at
ftp://ftp.andrew.cmu.edu/pub/AFS-Tools/ and Russ Albery's afs-balance at
http://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/software/afs-balance. Are there others?

Is anyone maintaining balance or has anyone updated it more recently than
2003? (1.2-beta does at least compile on linux and solaris with minor

Cheers, Stephen

The problem with troubleshooting is that often trouble shoots back.
