Diagnosing Performance Problems with EvaluateAndLog

Chris Webb wants to sort out some performance issues on calculation groups:

A few weeks ago I wrote a post showing how you can use the new EvaluateAndLog DAX function to diagnose performance problems relating to the use of the Switch function. Did you know that calculation groups can experience similar performance problems though?

In this post I’ll show you a simple example.
