How easy to imagine the work of php-fpm?

Trying to understand what is php-fpm, what it is and how it works, it is a complement(module) to the php interpreter? Or alternative?

Typing on a printing device, enter the following - "php-fpm" on the website "Google" and then clicking on the first URL in the results, we can make reading information:
Work with FPM you work with Apache in the first place so that FPM is only PHP. This is not a web server, not something clever. It's the opposite - the most simple, easy and fast process Manager for PHP. Unlike Apache, it even does not use the http Protocol, and works with special fastcgi Protocol. First and foremost FPM handles requests faster thanks to its lightness and simplicity.
