LAG with ESXi


I have a SGE2010 and have one static LAG going to each of my (two) ESX servers.  From my testing it seems that the LAG speed is maxing out of 1Gbps.  I am unable to get anything faster than that.  I cannot find the load-balancing algorithm that these switches are capable of using.  Does anyone know?  Right now my ESX boxes are set to use IP hash and that does not seem to be allowing anything more than 1Gbps of actual speed.  When I am testing between virtual servers that are on the same ESX box I can get speeds of 2Gbps+

Also, I've noticed that when I check the status of the LAGs the operation speed is at 1000Mbps. Why would this not reflect the total speed of the LAG (should be 4000Mbps)???

What is it that I am doing wrong?
