VM load balance policy.

Have a question about 10GB nic and 1GB nic in switch.
We have vswitch with "route based ip hash" with five vmnic.
Each port are 1GB.
Does this sending 5 *1GB packet or 1* 5 GB packet?
My understanding is that one time 5GB since it is ip hash.

if i understood correctly  my case it transfer 4*1GB packet not 1*4GB, that is , packet is being transferred via one nic at time. if i use 10GB nic then chances are 10GB packet?

Andrew,
