Sometimes developers want to know which Role Instance handles requests from the client side for several conditions:
• They want to know which deployment slot handles the request.
• They use traffic manager to connect 7 cloud services together, and want to know which cloud service will handle the requests from south Asia.
• They want to test load balance behavior.
So they may need to let the role instance connect to Azure management service and get the necessary messages.
This sample will demonstrate how to determine which windows Azure Cloud Service Role instance handles the request.
