SharePoint Refiner Active vs. Latent

For my actual customer, I must configure some refiners. For this you must set the managed property to refinable. But there are different configurations:

 

refinerconfig

So what are the difference between active and latent?

This is pretty simple. When you design your refiner and won’t affect the server due performance issues, you must use the latent option. When you are done with your configuration and customization you cen “go live” with “yes- active”.
