Pvm is a stand alone PVM task which allows the user to interactively
query and modify the virtual machine. The console can be started and
stopped multiple times on any of the hosts in the virtual machine with
out affecting PVM or any applications that may be running.

When started pvm determines if PVM is already running and if not auto
matically executes pvmd3 on this host, passing pvmd3 the command line
options and host file. Thus PVM need not be running to start the con
sole. Once started the console prints the prompt:
