MPIO policy settings for Windows cluster

Hi experts,

  What is the correct load balance policy for windows cluster? I currently run with SQST, ALB on but I got many error messages from time to time. It is very slow(300~700ms per read) during backup and it caused disk missing once. Please help. (Please see attachment for full text)
