Azure Backend pool without load balancing rules

Risk Level

Informational (4)



Load balancer is a service which distributes inbound flows that arrive at the load balancer's front end to backend pool instances (Azure Virtual Machines or instances in a virtual machine scale set), according to the configured load balancing rules. Backend pool defines the group of resources that will serve traffic routed from the load balancer. The backend pool - {AzureBackEndPool} which is attached to the load balancer {AzureBackEndPool.LoadBalancer.Name} do not have load balancing rules associated with it.
  • Recommended Mitigation

    It is recommended to review the load balancer's backend pools configuration and if not needed remove any unused resources in order to reduce costs or configure relevant load balancing rules.
