This paper presents a way to build a computational Grid for PVM programs. The Grid applies Jini to handle the dynamically changing set of participants, and to make the communication between Grid-clients and Grid-machines possible. In case of a PVM-Grid the grid-resources are Parallel Virtual Machines. Our system provides a high-level interface for them, which through the users can submit their locally compiled PVM-programs. Our Grid-implementation gives support for run-time monitoring of the submitted PVM-programs as well. To achieve this functionality, clients have to use in their PVM source codes the Instrumentation API developed by SZTAKI.
