You should bring this up in the Hector user group. It sounds like in the case of a tie, a random winner should be chosen, instead of taking the first one.

LeastActiveBalancingPolicy leads to the first node always winning :-)

Is StorageProxy bean the only way to detect this, considering that all nodes are
evenly loaded?
