Can anyone point me to documentation which explains Round Robin MPIO in vSphere.  Not how to set it up, but how it works.

I am looking to configure MPIO on my VSphere install, but I am after fail over, not load balancing.  I have two physical switches and would like to make sure the ISCSI connection does not die when (or if) a switch goes down.

Will round robin provide me with this type of fail over?  What other options do I have other than round robin?
