This document specifies a mechanism that enables a Routing Protocol
for Low-power and Lossy Networks (RPL) router to measure the
aggregated values of given routing metrics along an existing route
towards another RPL router, thereby allowing the router to decide if
it wants to initiate the discovery of a better route.

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