I've been doing some things that collect volume statistics nightly
(vnode usage, size, etc) and stores them in a SQL table, and I
periodically run a perl script that does volume moves of user home
volumes based on size & usage in an attempt to balance out capacity
and IO load amongst a collection of servers.
I'll see about posting the perl script that does this (it's not
actually that pretty) to the list next week if anyone is interested.
