Business Value - 

In 2022 release wave 1, we add new capabilities to the AL performance profiler. In this release wave, we are going to empower functional developers/consultants, as well as customer administrators and power users to capture a user flow from within the web client, and view high-level information about time spent in the web client. This way, people can investigate which involved extensions consume the most time, including top-consuming method calls, for example.

History - 

In 2021 release wave 2, Microsoft added the AL performance profiler to the Visual Studio Code AL experience. 

The performance profiler has empowered pro developers to investigate performance as part of developing new functionality, as well as help troubleshoot performance issues in AL code in customer environments, even in production.
