In the "LSP/Link Size Overbooking" method one can apply overbooking by
tweaking the LSP size (lets' call this the "LSP Size Overbooking")
and/or by tweaking the Max Reservable Bw (lets' call this the "Link Size
Assuming we define LSOM as the "Link Size Overbooking Multiplier" (as
opposed to the "LSP/Link Size Overbooking Multiplier"), then I agree
with the above relationship.
Just to be clear, what I am trying to say is that the above relationship
you stated relates to the overbooking applied on the Link (but that the
overbooking applied on the LSP size is transparent to that because it is
already factored in the LSP size configured/signaled).

Again, assuming we define LSOM as the "Link Size Overbooking Multiplier"
(as opposed to the "LSP/Link Size Overbooking Multiplier"), then I agree
with your relationship.
Thanks for helping get all this clarified.
