Why am I having an uneven data balancing issue with AutoLBVolume?

It appears we have a data load balancing issue that affects the search performance on the indexers.
Some indexers finish within a few seconds and some take ages, 5mins and which turns out to be an uneven data ingestion across indexers.

As of this writing, it appears autoLBVolume is found not working as it is supposed to. You may want to remove it and instead add forceTimebasedAutoLB=true with smaller value for autoLBFrequency, like 10s - as small as. you can find better load-balancing across the indexers.
