What is a direct route for S series switches

Direct route: indicates the route of a subnet connected by a router interface. The interface and its connected subnet are in the same network segment, so the direct route always serves as the network segment route of the outbound interface. Direct routes are discovered by link-layer protocols and indicate routes that are in the same network segment as the interface address of a router. The routes are not maintained by network administrators and not obtained by a router using a certain algorithm. As long as the interface is active, the router writes the routing information of the network segment to the routing table. Direct routes cannot make a router obtain routes which are not directly connected to the router.
