Multiple useless queries to DB (snowflake) with LIMIT 1000 OFFSET 0

We are managing a large project in powerbi. Data is stored in Snowflake and we have developed 50 PBI Dashboards that import data once a day quering customized views in Snowflake. We use StoneBranch as scheduler to trigger refresh for all dashboards. When analizing data queries on Snowflake we find multiple useless queries ending by LIMIT 1000 OFFSET 0, which runs a full process of calculation and computing for nothing. Is there someone facing the same problem?

That is often the query sent by Power Query or when creating a dataflow in design mode. It only wants the first 1,000 records for the preview window. It will say the analysis is based in the first 1,000 records in the lower left corner of the Power Query window.



Are you still seeing that after the report has been put into production and normal refreshes are happening?
