This is fsck.

This is fsck.ext3 - a separate program. Note that the parent process
ID of this one (2658) is the ID of the fsck process. So you can see
that you ran fsck, and then fsck spawned fsck.ext3 which does the
actual leg-work of checking your (in this case) ext3 partition. There
are others like fsck.msdos, fsck.vfat, fsck.ext4 and so on, for other
