If I add a device to a ring and objects are redistributed, how do I manage the ensuing spike in bandwidth usage?

And a subquestion: Is redistribution of objects done through the replication network? That would probably help. Or what if I incrementally increase the weight of the device from 0 - will it incrementally move objects to the new device without redistributing between other devices?

From "In a production cluster, most likely, you will want to slowly add in new storage devices by using a lower weight". This helps minimizing spikes.
