    246 Flukes support adding 'coloring' annotation to the slice requests that is passed unaffected through the resource provisioning and becomes visible in the slice manifest, where provisioned resources can be correlated to the assigned colors. A color label (a string) can be assigned to any resource in the request (a node or a link) and also to a special kind of colored edge between any two resources. Each color label can be associated with a dictionary of key-value pairs or a blob of text or XML. The purpose of this work is to allow higher level (e.g. application) annotation of the request graph. An application can assign color labels of its choosing to different resources, associate properties (dictionaries or text blobs) with them and inspect the manifest graph that represents the combination of this annotation and the description of the provisioned resources. This may help the application consuming the manifest to make deployment decisions of its components in the slice.

    248 Since this ORCA feature is really meant for automated processing, the support in Flukes is meant primarily for testing and debugging.  
     246Flukes supports adding 'coloring' annotation to the slice requests that is passed unaffected through the resource provisioning engine in ORCA and becomes visible in the slice manifest, where provisioned resources can be correlated to the assigned colors and their properties. A color label (a string) can be assigned to any resource in the request (a node or a link) and also to a special kind of colored edge between any two resources, that may represent a directed labeled dependency between resources. Each color label can be associated with a dictionary of key-value pairs or a blob of text or XML. The purpose of this work is to allow higher level (e.g. application) annotation of the request graphs. An application can assign color labels of its choosing to different resources, associate properties (dictionaries or text blobs) with them and inspect the manifest graph that represents the combination of this annotation and the description of the provisioned resources. This may help the application consuming the manifest to make deployment decisions of its components in the slice using e.g. extracted properties in the form of dictionaries or text blobs, readable by the application.
