Node fairness requires customizable time interval
Currently, the interval for “AutoBalancing” with "Node Fairness" is non-configurable and will happen every 30 minutes.
I would like to see a way to customize the time interval and also provide a way to (manualy) invoke the balancing mechanism.

That is a good workaroud, but I was after an Invoke-ClusterAutoBalancer alike solution ;-)

VM Load Balancer will run when it is enabled, so you can actually toggle it off with the following cmdlet:
(Get-Cluster).AutoBalancer = 0
Then toggle it back on:
(Get-Cluster).AutoBalancer = 2
You could automate that with Task Scheduler, to control when it runs... or to do things like disable during business hours and only run during off hours, etc...
Does that meet your needs?

Good idea. Especially the invoke option to test the feature.
