    Capacity Reservation


    Is there any possibility of capacity reservation in OFSC. The requirement is to release capacity in continuous fashion based on the usage.

    For example, If capacity has to be reserved for 25/Feb starting 18/Feb then while during get_Capacity using Capacity Management API it should give only 60% of the allocated capacity in minutes. Later if the capacity consumption is increased by 22/Feb, user should be able to increase the release of capacity to 90% and so on...

    Requirement 2: Is there possibility of Overbooking in OFSC. While performing get_Capacity using Capacity Management API, whether OFSC can send more than allocated quota(e.g. allocated = 480 mins/per day for each capcity category & time slot) then will it be possible for OFSC for respond with more available capacity 1000 mins/day for each capacity category and time slots combination.?

      ​Requirement 1: Yes you can use the set_quota to change that value​

      Requirement 2: yes you can set it to allow for overbooking because you can set quota to whatever % of capacity you want so you can set it to say you have available quota for ​999.9 % of the actual capacity or number of man minutes yo​u​ have.
