When I boot my Ubuntu 13.04 up, I noticed that my fans goes crazy and when I had a glanced at System Monitor, I saw that a process called unity-music-daemon is using a large amount of memory and CPU. I found on internet that uninstallation of unity-lens-music package will solve this issue. What I want to know is what unity-music-daemon does. Since uninstalling it solves this problem, I hope this package has nothing to do with music players or audio. Can anybody explain what this daemon does?

Thank you.
