# Qiskit Runtime: What are the units of job.result().time_taken? Seconds, milli-seconds, micro-seconds?

job = execute(qwalk_circuit, backend='ibmq_16_melbourne', shots=1000)

results = job.result()

time = job.result().time_taken


What are the units of time? And where is this stated in the documentation?

Thanks!

• I tried to run a job and compare the output of time_taken to the runtime in IBM quantum experience, but I cannot find any relation between the two. Jul 29, 2022 at 13:45
• Looks like missing from the docs indeed: qiskit.org/documentation/stubs/… Jul 29, 2022 at 16:56
