"Retry" in context

Retry is an important concept in computing, used to rescue a failed operation by attempting it again. It is a way to avoid failure and to increase the reliability of a system by trying the same operation multiple times if needed.

Retry logic can be applied to databases, web service requests, and other operations that need to be attempted multiple times since they may fail due to temporary external issues. This can be due to infrastructure or network failures, or availability of the service.

In many cases, retry can be done with a simple boolean flag set as true, which will then cause the same operation to be attempted again.
