When do I use healthck's and when do I use port-policies?

It looks like both are doing the same from my point of view... thx for the clarification.

There are small differences. One example is the fact that you do need to specify an IP address configuring an healthck. You do need to specify a destination ports as well. That implies a single healthck is always going to check the same destination IP at the same port.

You do not have to enter an IP address and port using port-policies. You can bind the same port-policy to multiple real servers (respectively real server ports) and the port-policy is going to use the current real servers IP and the port it is bound to instead of a fixed IP address and port.

Do you have to check very special things: use the healthck's (it is even possible to check a foreign IP address). Do you want a simple way to check the same for multiple real servers/services? go for port-policies.
