Formalize the Traffic Manager user agent string
I would like to see the user agent that Traffic Manager uses in its HTTP requests as part of monitoring/probing become formalized so that applications can take a dependency on the user agent string name and not worry about it changing in the future affecting the application that has behavior that depends on the user agent.
For an example where the user agent string is needed to comply with URL canonicalization needs along with Traffic Manager being involved, please refer to http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/azure/en-US/d9f8e779-644d-4263-990c-9de5a7cf403c/is-the-user-agent-for-traffic-manager-guaranteed.
We included formalizing the Traffic Manager user agent string in our roadmap.

User-Agent appears to have updated recently to "Azure Traffic Manager Endpoint Monitor"
It seems this still hasn't changed.
The UA remains: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 6.1; GTMProbe 1.0)
Could you please give an update on whether this is going to change / being updated in the future or what the current status is?
Thanks & regards,
