Oracle 11g database Scheduled job email notification message

In my Oracle 11gR2 database I set email notification for a Scheduled job. The job is quite simple and it insers records from one schema to another with some Oracle merge statement.

In the notification email I see the details. How do I interpret its contents? The job it say succeeded but it as well say that Failure count: 7 , what does it actually mean?

Date: 01-APR-11 AM CST6CDT
Log id: 15984
Run count: 24
Failure count: 7
Retry count: 0

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


It means that the job has run totally 24 (Run count)  times under which it failed to execute 7 times (Failure Count).  :)
