When DLR Control VM Deployment is Needed in VMware NSX?

Question: When DLR Control VM Deployment is Needed in VMware NSX?
Answer: It is needed when you want to configure dynamic routing, if you are looking for only static routing configuration for east-west traffic then DLR Control VM is not required

Deploy Edge Appliance is selected by default. An edge appliance (also called a logical router virtual
appliance) is required for dynamic routing and the logical router appliance's firewall, which applies to
logical router pings, SSH access, and dynamic routing traffic.
You can deselect the edge appliance option if you require only static routes, and do not want to
deploy an Edge appliance. You cannot add an Edge appliance to the logical router after the logical router has been created. If you have created it from vSphere Web Client GUI Mode, it remains in the Un-deployed State
