So after I deployed the application and found out it really worked, I went to the Server Explorer. There you can connect to Windows Azure Compute and while clicking down, you can choose for View Profiling Report.

Visual Studio gets busy and in the Windows Azure Activity log a new activity starts. At that point the data for the report is gathered form the Windows Azure tables with the tracing data.
