I have two server racks with Edge-core AS5712 TOR switches I want to MLAG together.  My original plan called for 'peerlink'-ing ports 37-48, 12 total 10G ports. Would this work?

It would work of course it just seems like a bit of overkill. Assuming 10Gig dual attached servers, I might only plan for 4-6 link failures which equates to two or three 10 gig links in use for the peerlink. We have a nice guide on how to size the peerlink that was just added to our documentation within the past two months or so take a look and consider what the tolerance for failure is within your organization. -->
