Is Active-standby configuration possible with Azure loadbalancer?

Hi, I'm trying to implement HA for a business application running on VM's. The application only supports active-standby configuration through the service shell. So, if two VM's are placed in an availability set, can Azure loadbalancer monitor the signals from them and perform failover when the error occurs?

    @Kelvin Zheng , As of today this feature is still under review as Azure LB works on Hash based routing. This HA configuration would be possible by deploying a Traffic manager in your architecture. All you need to do is route traffic through Traffic manger based on priority method. So, the failover use case the priority method. Meanwhile, you can upvote the similar ask here in this feedback section for its future availability.
