I have an oracle job that shows total_time = 202274 in dba_jobs table, which roughly translates to 56 hours. If this is the time taken to excute that job, does it mean that the job took 56 hours to complete ? That job is started every morning at 6:00 am and when I lookup dba_jobs_running at 9:00am, it is all done.
So what does this number 202274 in total_time really mean ?
