The OSI model, except the top 15 of 21 layers are all application

Today I worked on service A, which, when it receives a request from service B, will translate that request into a format that service C understands. Service C will forward the request without modification to service D, which, using configuration generated by service A, will fan out that request into as many as 20 separate requests back to service B. Some of those requests will repeat this cycle, others will be forwarded to services E and F. Service E often, but not always, delegates to service F.
