I have from 3 to 4 physical NICs assigned to a VSwitch. Does this mean the speed is aggregate or is it simply failover?
you get load balancing and failover
I setup a single virtual switch with 120 ports that has 10 physical nics. What I'm not sure on is would it be better if I broke it into 2 vswitches with 5 each? I'm going with the keep it simple solution.
sorry double post

What if the two physical NICs are plugged into two core switches runnign VRRP-EXTENDED? Will this cause a loop and result in a network storm? Will the virtual switch respect 802.1w spanning tree packets?
No, vswitches do not participate in any switch-to-switch algorithms.
