It looks like you only have a few flows, with one of those flows

doing the best job it can: put the big flow on one NIC and the
rest on the other NIC.

I guess I need to learn more about how OVS works and what a "flow" is as it seems to work different than the kernel load balancing.  

So can communication that happens over a single persistent socket connection be split across multiple flows?
