Message Routing Schemes
Packages are units of information flow.
Each package is stored in intermediate node before it is forwarded to the next node.
Latency proportional to communication distance.
Flits are units of information flow.
Each received flit of a package is forwarded to next node before the next flit is received.
Latency almost independent of communication distance.
Modern multicomputers use wormhole routing!
