We present an experimental framework, F-PRAM model, for modeling, studying, and teaching the impacts of different properties of parallel computers. The performance model is a parameterized model similar to BSP  and LogP  with some additional parameters for more refined analysis when needed. To use the model, we present an emulation and experimentation system to study the impact of the parameters and communication network design decisions on application algorithm performance.
