How can we improve Azure SQL Database?

Throttle indicator

We would like to have an indicator that tells us how close our azure services are to being throttled. We don't need specific throttle metrics, but a general indicator (red/yellow/green) for each azure service (Sql Azure, Table storage, Blob Storage, etc.) that can be throttled.

With this information, we can scale down our usage of non-essential threads in favor of allowing mission-critical threads to continue processing rather than getting stopped cold when they are throttled (even with a retry policy, you're stopped/on hold until the throttle is removed).
