Application Tracker is part of an overall effort to help expose Finance and Operations telemetry to customer and partners. It will allow you to collect detailed performance traces and send them to an Application Insights instance in your own Microsoft Azure subscription. Application Insights enables advanced querying and analytics tools on top of this telemetry. Application Tracker is available for development and test environments.
Create an App Insights subscription
Configure the local development environment to publish telemetry data
Restart the service to initiate telemetry data broadcast
Use the application ....
All telemetry exists in the windows event log under the Application Tracker folder. In addition, setting up Application Insights as described earlier will upload the telemetry and allow you to take advantage of powerful analytical tools.
Go to your Application insight page in the Microsoft Azure portal and click on Logs (Analytics).
Application Tracker Logs are in the tables named requests and dependencies. I find it more useful to work with the dependencies table. Browse the different fields in the dependencies table to get an idea of the data that is collected. The customDimensions and CustomMeasurements container fields provide addition information regarding tables, SQL, and performance. Get familiar with the query language and analytics tools.
I encourage you to play with the query language and browse the data in customDimensions and CustomMeasurements.

This is a sample query that returns the slowest 10 operations in the last 7 days. It renders the result in a pie chart.
| where timestamp > ago(7d)
| sort by duration desc | render piechart
| project operation_Name, duration
| limit 10
| extend timeInCompute = customMeasurements.['(SQLInsightsTracker) Total time spent in Compute (ms)']
| extend tablesAccess = customDimensions.['(TableAccessTracker) Tables']
| project operation_Name, timeInCompute, tablesAccess, customDimensions, customMeasurements
| sort by toint(timeInCompute) desc
| limit 20
customDimensions.['ActivityID'] to aggregate operations by activity.
