Problems with load balancing (9.5.2)

I have an environment with one MoM and 8 collectors using CA APM 9.5.2. When I do a recycle of the environment, it seems that the following happens:

 

1) The collectors that get started up first get handed the majority of the agents by the MoM

2) These collectors get completely overloaded because 5 or 6 of the other collectors are sitting there doing nothing

3) Because these collectors are overloaded, they never respond to the MoM for future load balancing requests so they sit there with all the agents overloaded throwing errors

4) The other collectors never get handed over any agents via the load balancer

 

So has anyone else seen this behavior? What can I do to stop it from happening?
