Active Fault Management
Definition - What does Active Fault Management mean?
Techopedia explains Active Fault Management
In active fault management, the system is uniquely designed to efficiently suit the impact of the alarm whenever the active monitoring system detects a problem. The detection is also "active," meaning that the tools are always checking for certain parameters and asking for replies from different nodes. Passive monitoring simply waits for a node to report a problem, assuming the node is smart enough to do that. This method allows operators to easily locate the specific portion that is affected by the malfunction or possible malfunction and quickly come up with a solution.
