The Optimized Link State Routing Protocol version 2 (OLSRv2) includes
the ability to assign metrics to links and to use those metrics to
allow routing by other than minimum hop count routes.  This document
provides a historic record of the rationale for, and design
considerations behind, how link metrics were included in OLSRv2.

This document is a product of the Mobile Ad-hoc Networks Working Group of the IETF.
