```So we are currently running a 10 node ring in one DC, and we are going to be adding 5 more
nodes
in another DC.  To keep the rings in each DC balanced, should I really calculate the tokens
independently
and just make sure none of them are the same? Something like:

DC1 (RF 5):
1:      0
2:      17014118346046923173168730371588410572
3:      34028236692093846346337460743176821144
4:      51042355038140769519506191114765231716
5:      68056473384187692692674921486353642288
6:      85070591730234615865843651857942052860
7:      102084710076281539039012382229530463432
8:      119098828422328462212181112601118874004
9:      136112946768375385385349842972707284576
10:     153127065114422308558518573344295695148

DC2 (RF 3):
1:      1 (one off from DC1 node 1)
2:      34028236692093846346337460743176821145 (one off from DC1 node 3)
3:      68056473384187692692674921486353642290 (two off from DC1 node 5)
4:      102084710076281539039012382229530463435 (three off from DC1 node 7)
5:      136112946768375385385349842972707284580 (four off from DC1 node 9)

Originally I was thinking I should spread the DC2 nodes evenly in between every other DC1
node.
Or does it not matter where they are in respect to the DC1 nodes, and long as they fall somewhere
after every other DC1 node? So it is DC1-1, DC2-1, DC1-2, DC1-3, DC2-2, DC1-4, DC1-5...

Right, when you are computing balanced RP tokens for NTS you need to compute the tokens for
each DC independently.

is false.
