AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) vs Codecov: What are the differences?
What is AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB)? Automatically distribute your incoming application traffic across multiple Amazon EC2 instances. With Elastic Load Balancing, you can add and remove EC2 instances as your needs change without disrupting the overall flow of information. If one EC2 instance fails, Elastic Load Balancing automatically reroutes the traffic to the remaining running EC2 instances. If the failed EC2 instance is restored, Elastic Load Balancing restores the traffic to that instance. Elastic Load Balancing offers clients a single point of contact, and it can also serve as the first line of defense against attacks on your network. You can offload the work of encryption and decryption to Elastic Load Balancing, so your servers can focus on their main task.
What is Codecov? Hosted coverage reports with awesome features to enhance your CI workflow. Our patrons rave about our elegant coverage reports, integrated pull request comments, interactive commit graphs, our Chrome plugin and security.
AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) belongs to "Load Balancer / Reverse Proxy" category of the tech stack, while Codecov can be primarily classified under "Code Coverage".
Some of the features offered by AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) are:
- Distribution of requests to Amazon EC2 instances (servers) in multiple Availability Zones so that the risk of overloading one single instance is minimized. And if an entire Availability Zone goes offline, Elastic Load Balancing routes traffic to instances in other Availability Zones.
- Continuous monitoring of the health of Amazon EC2 instances registered with the load balancer so that requests are sent only to the healthy instances. If an instance becomes unhealthy, Elastic Load Balancing stops sending traffic to that instance and spreads the load across the remaining healthy instances.
- Support for end-to-end traffic encryption on those networks that use secure (HTTPS/SSL) connections.
On the other hand, Codecov provides the following key features:
- Beautiful Reports
- Pull Request Comments
- Interactive Commit Graphs
"Easy" is the top reason why over 46 developers like AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB), while over 14 developers mention "More stable than coveralls" as the leading cause for choosing Codecov.
According to the StackShare community, AWS Elastic Load Balancing (ELB) has a broader approval, being mentioned in 723 company stacks & 314 developers stacks; compared to Codecov, which is listed in 49 company stacks and 29 developer stacks.
My website is brand new and one of the few requirements of testings I had to implement was code coverage. Never though it was so hard to implement using a #docker container.
Given my lack of experience, every attempt I tried on making a simple code coverage test using the 4 combinations of #TravisCI, #CircleCi with #Coveralls, #Codecov I failed. The main problem was I was generating the
.coverage file within the docker container and couldn't access it with #TravisCi or #CircleCi, every attempt to solve this problem seems to be very hacky and this was not the kind of complexity I want to introduce to my newborn website.
This problem was solved using a specific action for #GitHubActions, it was a 3 line solution I had to put in my github workflow file and I was able to access the
.coverage file from my docker container and get the coverage report with #Codecov.
