Analyzing Database Wait Statistics Telemetry

APPLIES TO: Business Central 2022 release wave 1, version 20.0, and later

The database performance can also be analyzed by checking the information at Database Wait Statistics. You can see how many queries got delayed because of different wait types along with their wait times. The wait types give you an idea about the resources or operations that are responsible for the slow performance.

For more information about wait statistics in optimizing database and application performance, see Database Wait Statistics in Dynamics 365 Business Central.

Note

The wait times aren't live. These statistics show the wait times for the queries which are completed from the time the database was started or when it was reset.
