1. A method for use in a computing system comprising at least one network, a plurality of hosts coupled to the at least one network, and at least one management controller coupled to the plurality of hosts via the at least one network, the method comprising acts of:
(A) receiving, by the at least one management controller, from each one of the plurality of hosts, an indication of a quantity of data of a first type and a quantity of data of a second type to be transmitted by the one host over the at least one network; and
(B) determining, based at least in part on the indications received in the act (A), a rate at which each of the plurality of hosts is to transmit data of the first type over at least one first channel on the at least one network, and a rate at which each of the plurality of hosts is to transmit data of the second type over at least one second channel on the at least one network.
