Integration vs Check

A Check is any integration whose execution is triggered directly in code by the Datadog Agent. Therefore, all Agent-based integrations written in Python or Go are considered Checks.

Why test tests

We track the coverage of tests in all cases as a drop in test coverage for test code means a test function or part of it is not called. For an example see this test bug fixed thanks to test coverage. See pyca/pynacl#290 and #4280 for more details.
