I'd like to try making them less aggressive first if possible.

Well, that's exactly what I'm trying to do: make them not aggressive
at all by not performing any load balance :-) The workload gets maximum
benefit with zero aggressiveness.

Unfortunately we can't forget about other workloads, and we're
trying to stay away from runtime tunables in the scheduler.

If we can get performance to within a couple of tenths of a percent
of the zero balancing case, then that would be preferable I think.
