Logical Routing Components table in the NSX Design Guide


Anyone know who's responsible for the Design Guide?

Page 53 / Figure 45 has some issues, like

only 6 numbers in the graphic, but 8 called out in the explanation

the description for 4 refers to redistributing OSPF  but "4" in the graphic shows a "Control" arrow from the DLR VM to the Controller cluster

The descriptions for 4 and 5 can merge into a giant "3' description

then renumber description 6 to 4, 7 to 5 and 8 to 6.  This lines up the descriptions with the graphic.

Also, if it could be rewritten to call the "control VM" the "DLR appliance" and refer to the Controller VM assigned to be the master for the DLR as something specific so you don't get confused by statements like

"The controller leverages the control plane"

"The DLR Control VM can be configured"

"the IP address assigned to the control VM"

"The DLR control VM pushes the IP routes learned from the NSX Edge to the controller cluster"

from the graphic: "Controller Cluster" 

Even a uniform capitalization format would be helpful.
