ospf interfaces state machine and ospf neighbours state (relashionship)

Hi folks,

Can some explains the relationship between ospf interfaces sate machines and ospf neighbours state?

there so many sources online stating that the  election of the  DR happens just right after the two state in the ospf adjacencies forming.

I have also read that the election of the DR happens  just right after the wait timers which is the critical insterface state machine needed for ospf to be functional in that particular interface.


ok we have insterface state machines in one hand and ospf neighbour state in the other hand, there is overlapping information. I am confused, i need some clarification

Now i am lost, i need to understand these overlapping of information.

I need your help please
