RoleInstanceStatus Enumeration

Updated: October 18, 2011

Indicates the status of a role instance.

Namespace: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.ServiceRuntime
Assembly: Microsoft.WindowsAzure.ServiceRuntime (in Microsoft.WindowsAzure.ServiceRuntime.dll)

public enum class RoleInstanceStatus

Member nameDescription
BusyIndicates that the role instance is unavailable for requests.
ReadyIndicates that the role instance is ready to accept requests.

The RoleInstanceStatus object is returned in the Status property of the RoleInstanceStatusCheckEventArgs class.

If the status of a role instance is Ready, it is prepared to receive requests from the load balancer. If the status of a role instance is Busy, it will not receive requests from the load balancer.

The following code example shows how to check the status of the role instance:

public override bool OnStart()
   RoleEnvironment.StatusCheck += RoleEnvironmentStatusCheck;
   return base.OnStart();
private void RoleEnvironmentStatusCheck(object sender, RoleInstanceStatusCheckEventArgs e)
   Trace.WriteLine("The status of the role instance:" + e.Status, "Information");
