Anything remotely popular on PM2 will not pass on Ares right now. It
has no chance of reaching SLA effectiveness.

Also of note is that Ares has been auto load balancing based on
supply for years. That was one of the first optimizations I made
trying to squeeze more performance out of it. The problem is that
for anything really popular, its difficult to hit hard enough while
still making sure you pass all the projects of medium popularity. We
could certainly move this to a manual control, but my advice is that
if you don't care whether a project hits on Ares, then turn Ares off
for that project.

I can only see adding a manual control if there are a lot of grey
ares on PM1 where we care if a project hits, but not if it hits hard
enough to notice?
