What is active bug management?
Active Fault Management is one of two ways to carry out fault management in network systems. It is constantly in the process of identifying, isolating, and resolving problems on the network by actively using monitoring tools to determine whether a particular device being monitored is active and responding to any process or is already inactive and has stopped responding . When a device fails to perform the required tasks, the active monitoring system sends an alarm indicating that the device is not responding or that a problem has occurred so that proactive action can be taken before the problem gets worse.
Fault management in general is able to detect certain network problems by navigating through the affected hardware, which is then isolated from other unaffected hardware. This process is done automatically and quickly using tools that connect to a database. Most networks have GUIs that illustrate the problem and show the node in question.
In active fault management, the system is designed to efficiently counter the effects of the alarm when the active monitoring system detects a problem. The detection is also 'active', which means that the tools are always looking for certain parameters and asking for answers from different nodes. Passive monitoring simply waits for a node to report a problem, provided the node is intelligent enough to do so. With this method, the operator can easily locate the specific part affected by the malfunction or possible malfunction and quickly find a solution.
