Protocol for Low-power-lossy (RPL) is Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) routing protocol for Low-Power and Lossy Networks standardized by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). RPL uses two objective functions: Objective Function zero (OF0) and Minimum Rank with Hysteresis Objective Function (MRHOF). This paper investigates the effects of some important parameters on performance of MRHOF by using different topologies: random, linear and ellipse topology, based on some metrics such as: Hop Count (HC), Expected Transmission Count (ETX), lost packets, received packets and power consumption within 10 min, 20 min and 30 min. The results have shown the maximum and minimum values for each metrics within different times.
