How do we handle data skew in Azure Data Explorer?

Hi team - I would like to understand how to identify whether our tables are impacted due to data skew and if so how we can handle it.

Is smaller extents size cause data skew?

Please share some insights around this.

    data skew

    What do you mean with this?

    Azure Data Explorer

    It's just a tool to query data. If you get a "skew" result, then because of your existing data, not because of the tool.
