Currently, Resin distributes a new connection to the server with the  
least number of active connections.  (With 3.1, we might add a CPU  
usage component to that cost calculation.)

If one server is faster, it will complete connections faster and  
therefore be ready for a new connection before the other servers.   
So, if that server is twice as fast at completing connections, it  
should get twice the number of connections.

I'm experiencing this as well with the latest resin pro snapshot and 

I have 4 identical machines and the first server (index="1") in line gets 
double amount of requests compared to the rest, bogging the machine down. 
Interestingly if I bring the first server down the remaining 3 nodes will
balance just perfectly.

I've used the same machines with the same ordering with Resin2 and it's 
without this problem for quite some time. Apache 2.0.46 with both cases.
