     41Flukes follows a simple workflow: 
     42 
     43 * Create or load existing request file in the request pane 
     44 * Type in a name of the slice (must be unique) 
     45 * Click submit button 
     46 * Verify the return status has no errors 
     47 * Switch to Manifest pane 
     48 * Type in slice request into the field 
     49 * Continue querying for manifest until slice is ready (all reservations are up)

     51'''NOTE:''' the time it takes to create a slice is highly variable. It depends on a large number of factors. The dominant delays are associated with downloading and installing custom images at selected sites. If an image is new, it must be downloaded and registered at a site and then copied to a worker node on which a VM is being stood up. If the image has been used in the past, the delays are much shorter because images are cached in a number of places. Obviously, the larger the image, the longer the delays. It is not uncommon for slices to take 10 minutes to be stood up.
