The Routing Protocol for Low-Power and Lossy Networks (RPL)
constructs routes by using Objective Functions that optimize or
constrain the routes it selects and uses.  This specification
describes the Minimum Rank with Hysteresis Objective Function
(MRHOF), an Objective Function that selects routes that minimize a
metric, while using hysteresis to reduce churn in response to small
metric changes.  MRHOF works with additive metrics along a route, and
the metrics it uses are determined by the metrics that the RPL
Destination Information Object (DIO) messages advertise.  [STANDARDS-TRACK]

This document is a product of the Routing Over Low power and Lossy networks Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
