The emergence of large scale distributed memory computers has brought with it a variety of interconnection networks. As it is not feasible to fully interconnect the processors with a diameter of one, routing of messages is necessary. Wormhole routing is an efficient method of routing and in this paper, we derive a model for wormhole routing. Using this model, we determine the optimal buffer size, and hence show that for medium to large messages, the communication time using wormhole routing is dependent on the square root of the network diameter
