Question what is "camb" process

I installed following application on ubuntu 10.04 LL :system load indicator

(for those who are not visited the above link: It is application that gives us the details concerning the CPU and memory usage and appropriate indication when any of application exceeds CPU / Memory limits configured in its preferences)
Now it is giving me the indications of heavy memory and processor usage by an unknown application(unknown to me) named as "camb_2.16_i686"
what is it ??
thanks in advance !!

Hi -

Have you tried "dpkg –get-selections" to see if it's an installed package (and, if so, learn more about it)?

Or "man camb" or "apropos camb", to see if there's a "man" page for it?
