Public Shared Sub RequestRecycle
When the RequestRecycle method is called, the load balancer takes the role instance out of the rotation and the normal shutdown cycle is initiated. New requests are not routed to the role instance while it is restarting.
Windows Azure raises the Stopping event and calls the OnStop method where you can run the necessary code to prepare the role instance to be recycled.
