Provide wider range of config options similar to HAProxy
Currently, available config options of ILB are very limited and thus we have to somehow rely on HAProxy setup to achieve specific loadbalancing needs. It would be nice if you could extend and mimic the options of HAProxy, most notably weights, custom acl's along with custom probe settings.
Thank you for your suggestion. I’m going to decline this for now as the Azure Load Balancer is a TCP & UDP load balancer and does not have layer 7 functionality. Application Gateway or a 3rd party product may be a solution for the interim. I have noted the ask, but any change to this for Azure Load Balancer would be long term.
That said, we are looking at weighting, ACLs, and probe enhancements again now.
