Dynamic and static routing

The pros and cons associated with dynamic and static routing.

What are the pros and cons associated with dynamic and static routing?

With dynamic routing there is no manual intervention and the traffic is routed automatically whenever there is any outage in the network. Also it's quite scalable/manageable. Whenever you add any more sites -- you have to add the new sites/links only. In static routing there is manual intervention every time there is any outage or addition of removal of links/sites. Management becomes quite difficult with the addition of more sites. One advantage static routing has is better control.
