This paper describes a model for specification and performance metrics of parallel programs. A specification metric qualifies and quantifies the abstraction of a code fragment written in some computer language. A performance metric describes the run-time effects of a specification. A brief statement of the model is presented. An application to a C/MPI program that describes specification and performance metrics is described.
