happens if there are transient failures and retries? Unfortunately, the
chart below only displays the Task Duration for successful attempts and not
the cumulative time taken for that task to eventually succeed!"

Does this imply that the UI Page under Browse -> Task Instances, will also
only display successful attempts, when the task succeeds on subsequent
