This chapter describes features that are planned for CloudLab or under development: please contact us if you have any feedback or suggestions!
As part of the process of reserving resources on CloudLab, a type of RSpec called a manifest is created. The manifest gives a detailed description of the hardware allocated, including the specifics of network topology. Currently, CloudLab does not directly export this information to the user. In the interest of improving transparency and repeatable research, CloudLab will develop interfaces to expose, explore, and export this information.
