Hyper-V CSV Best Practice

Hi.

I'm looking for advice on the best practice for storing VMs in CSVs within a Hyper-V 2016 Cluster.

Is it better to have a few larger CSVs for the VMs or have more smaller CSVs?  Are there any recommedations on the maximum size of volumes or the number of VMs in each volume?

I'm running a 5 node cluster, fibre attached to a Nimble HF20.

Thanks
