uprocd is a "process preloader" or "process cache" for Linux systems. It starts a process (referred to as a module) in the background, then freezes it once initialization is completed. When you ask uprocd to run that module, it forks it and attaches the forked version to your terminal. This means that processes are only initialized once, so you don't have to wait around after starting a process.
