Differences between static and dynamic routes

The differences between static and dynamic routes are as follows:
Static routes are easy to configure, have low requirements on the system, and apply to simple, stable, and small networks. The disadvantage of static routes is that they cannot automatically adapt to network topology changes. Therefore, static routes require subsequent maintenance. Dynamic routing protocols have their routing algorithms. Therefore, dynamic routes can automatically adapt to network topology changes and apply to the networks on which Layer 3 devices are deployed. The configurations of dynamic routes are complex. Dynamic routes have higher requirements on the system than static ones and consume network resources and system resources.
