Hi Aparna,

If you are looking for the request flow for provisioning a VM in Openstack then you can refer the link below :

Basically, it starts with following file:

"""Handles all processes relating to instances (guest vms).

The :py:class:`ComputeManager` class is a :py:class:`nova.manager.Manager` that
handles RPC calls relating to creating instances.  It is responsible for
building a disk image, launching it via the underlying virtualization driver,
responding to calls to check its state, attaching persistent storage, and
terminating it.
