    1. Traffic Manager Logging & Alerts

      Traffic Manager needs to keep track of past endpoint health failures.
      In addition to this it should be possible to configure alerts about changes to endpoint health.

    2. Add more configurability to Traffic Manager monitoring endpoint

      I would like for the monitoring endpoint configuration to support two new options:

      1) How many consecutive times TrafficMgr does not get an http 200 from the endpoint before it deems it down. I have a scenario where I want it to be deemed down immediately after one failure for a quicker failover.
      2) How many consecutive times TrafficMgr receives an http 200 after it has deemed it down before it will deem it up again. I have seen a scenario where table storage (or SQL Azure) is inconsistent (fails one query then succeeds the next, back and forth) and…

    3. 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.

    4. Support edns-client-subnet extension in Traffic Manager

      I'm surprised to learn the Traffic Manager does not support the client-subnet feature. Most major CDNs & DNS providers seem to support it.

    5. Support CAA record in Azure DNS web portal

      Thank you for supporting CAA records via CLI/PowerShell/API - but for the majority of people, this isn't easy. Please add support for these records in the DNS zone management blade.

    6. Add App Service Virtual IP (VIP) as Traffic Manager endpoints

      When using the Alias Record Set of Azure DNS, it becomes an error if it is a domain name.

      App Service has a VIP, I would like an option to add IP instead of domain name.

    7. Roelant

      when adding endpoints to the traffic manager, you get all app-services that are available, but in our case, the list is very long, and searching makes it difficult. The list is not sorted, and neither can we filter it.
      Adding a filter would be very helpfull.

    8. Maintain "DNS Zone" name server across muliple Zones

      Currently Azure DNS Zone will randomly create Zone records in different DNS Servers.

      I have a public DNS server which I would like to migrate to Azure DNS Zone, to do this I need maintain my name servers but redirect to Azure's. because every time I create a new zone it is generated in a different DNS Server I can't create the CNAMEs to easily migrate my clients domains.

      Could this feature be added.

    9. Traffic analytics error reporting IP vs NIC

      We have several app-ways in the same subnet.
      Traffic analytics is display a DestIP_s which does not correspond with the displayed NIC_s (it belongs to a different app-way).
