Help debugging 'There was an error processing coverage reports'

Please check the troubleshooting guide before creating a ticket.

Description

I’m using bazel 3.5.0 to generate code coverage.dat files for my C++ build. The coverage.dat files seem to be in lcov format.

I’m using the bash uploader to upload these files, and it appears to work. However, when I try to view the results in the codecov.io UI, I see a generic message like “There was an error processing coverage reports.”, but it doesn’t tell me what the error was, nor provide any way to debug.

Additional Information

This appears to work sometimes. As you can from the commits in this PR https://codecov.io/gh/googleapis/google-cloud-cpp/pull/5070, some of them do process the code coverage info. I’ve no idea why it fails sometimes, and I have no idea how to debug this or where to look for errors.

Note that the coverage report that gets uploaded is about 40MB compressed, and about 900MB uncompressed. Is that exceeding some size limit that’s causing this error?

@devjgm I am 99% sure that is the case (that the upload is massive). Do you have any way of breaking this up into separate reports?

I solved this issue by merging all the coverage.dat files into a single merged lcov file. The filesize dropped from 900MB to ~16 MB, and everything seems to be working now.

So, even though I think codecov.io officially has no file size limit, it appears that there actually are some limits you’ll bump into with very large files. My wild guess is that their backend processing pipeline (or whatever) was hitting some timeout while trying to munge a 900MB coverage file.
