# Job Status: job incurred error

I was checking the limits of shots in IBMQ at the time of execution of the circuit so I was getting this error message Job Status: job incurred error at shots = 9000 what does it mean is there any limit at the no. of shots or it just some module failure

• If you run your algorithm in Composer, you can choose 1, 1024, 4096 or 8192 shots. So, it seems that there is a upper limit. – Martin Vesely Dec 14 '19 at 22:48
