    1. Azure load balancer currently doesn't report the status of backend pool VMs based on health probes.

      Azure load balancer should report the status of backend pool VMs based on the health probes we have created and not just report if the VM is running or not. Recently one of my backend pool VM went into high load and it took me minutes to identify the problematic one. LB was not sending any traffic to this VM however the portal was still showing it 'Running' instead of "Unhealthy" or "Failed". This would save a lot of time and will be easy to see health of backend pool vms.

    2. Add Outbound internet traffic routing capability for Azure Internal Load balancer

      The Azure Internal load balancer - standard Tier have limitation on Outbound connectivity for Azure VM that does not have Public IP associated with them.
      https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/load-balancer/load-balancer-outbound-connections

      We have Azure Microsoft SQL Virtual Machine that should not have any Public IP associated with them for security reason . We had to use Azure ILB for MS SQL Always ON Configuration. We had to use some of the standard Tier features. We are having issues with Outbound connectivity for the configuration. It would be ideal if Microsoft can also add to Standard SKU the outbound connectivity feature available in Basic SKU

    3. Allow moving a Standard SKU Load balancer between Resource Groups like possible with the basic one

      Allow moving a Standard SKU Load balancer between Resource Groups like possible with the basic one.
      while in place upgrade from basic to standard is not an option, this might help with the manual upgrade or even general maintenance of the service.

    4. I would like a probe for load balancers that uses the status of a DSC from an automation account

      I would like a probe for load balancers that uses the status of a DSC from an automation account. That way, when a VM is reimaged in a scaleset, it is unavailable to traffic until the DSC shows Compliant.

    5. Could we add VMs in Load balancer backend pool even they are in the different peered Vnets in the future?

    7. Load balancer probes health status via the api

      The back end pool health status, per VM, using the configured health probe should be available via the API.

    8. Load Balancer - HA ports stateful failover

      Currently, when a node (NVA) becomes unavailable, active sessions are not moved over to another healthy node in the pool, only new sessions get directed to healthy node. It would be nice to add support for the stateful failover of the active sessions.

    9. Could be possible LB TCP and UDP flows on all ports simultaneously when you're using an Public load balancer

      Unfortunately, HA ports configuration is available only for internal load balancers. It is not available for public load balancers.
