Microsoft Azure Application Gateway (AGW) is a service used to manage web traffic on your web application. It resembles a heap balancer for web traffic. Application Gateway settles on directing choices given the URI way or host headers which are added as extra data connected in HTTP demands. Customarily load balancer courses web traffic in light of source IP address to objective location, and it works at transport layers like OSI layer 4 of TCP or UDP. Application entryway utilizes data from HTTP demands; it can course traffic in light of the URLs to its particular arrangement of servers like/pictures to picture pool server or recordings to video pool.
Azure Application Gateway manages web traffic across one or more web applications because it acts as a load balancer enable to manage traffic across web applications. The application gateway works in two parts:

In the Backend Target tab
Now select Next: Tag and then Next: Review + Create for Verification and enter the detailed review and then click Create to create a new application gateway.
A new application gateway will be created as a map gateway. Here users can add new virtual machines, backend pools and users can clear resources.
