In the recent years, the role of virtualization has become vital in the grid computing community to bridge the gap between computation resource configuration and job requirements. The venture of virtualization in the grid computing environment has set another challenge to monitor and manage the virtual machines in the grid. To solve this problem of monitoring the virtual machines we propose a Virtual Information System which will provide the complete information about the virtual parameters of the machine. This information would be better useful for Grid management system to enhance the management of virtual resources.
