To create a route table that determines the destination of your network traffic.
A route table contains information that helps direct network traffic to other locations such as another instance or a network gateway. A route table is a database that keeps track of paths of data -- controlling where traffic is coming from and where it is going to.
When a network is creating in the Network Manager, a route table is created by default and directs traffic to the CIDR range of the network. This default route table cannot be modified or deleted. If you would like to direct traffic to either an IP address, instance, or network gateway, you can do so by creating a new route table and creating routes within the table. Subnets, which are smaller CIDR portions of a network, can be associated to a route table. If the route is not specified for a subnet when the subnet is created, it will use the default route table.
