It is a different type of process which runs at the background and used to handle user request or in other words can say these processes are used to serve user process. For example : when a user does ssh for a machine then machine daemon process catch the request and serve. These daemon process becomes active only when it receives request.

INIT is the parent process of these daemon processes.
