This document describes the problems associated with neighbor cache management in multihop networks involving resource-constrained devices. Thereafter, it also presents a sample neighbor management policy that allows efficient cache management in multihop LLNs (low- power and lossy networks such as LoWPAN) with resource-constrained devices.
