Not sure about vnodes setup. looks like the output shows only the first token. if you are looking for all tokens assigned,  'nodetool info -T' might help.

A quick follow up question - If my node is configured with Virtual Nodes and 256 tokens are assigned to it, how does the STATUS line only show one token value? In this case the -12331...#.

the output of "nodetool gossipinfo" are the application states of each endpoint/node in the cluster that are exchanged b/w the nodes during gossiping.

"Severity" is basically a measure of compaction activity/events in a node ( see for the details on how it is used by dynamic snitching).

LOAD is the data size (sum of size of all the ColumnFamilies in a node).

the number next to the STATUS line is the token assigned to that node. you seem to be using Murmur3Partitioner, which has negative tokens.

Does anyone know what the information that comes from the "nodetool gossipinfo" command means? 

For example, what is the LOAD #'s meaning or the SEVERITY #? My load is 91457.0 and SEVERITY: 22.448. Also, next to STATUS:NORMAL is a negative #: -123311655.... what does that # mean?
