static routing vs dynamic routing | difference between static routing and dynamic routing

This page on static routing vs dynamic routing describes difference between static routing and dynamic routing.

static routing dynamic routing
It is ideal for small networks. It is suitable for large networks.
Configuration of static routes involve less cost. It can be easily maintained by the network administrator. Dynamic routing involves cost in terms of CPU processes and bandwidth used on the network links.
Routes can not be changed until authorized by the administrator. Routing protocols find the best routes for traversing the packets to their destination.
Routes are not updated dynamically in the routing table and hence can not detect inactive routes. Routing protocols update the routing table with the update of the latest update on the routes.
