Copying from Cosmos DB needs many retrys to succeed

In our Azure data factory, I have a copy pipeline that copies from Cosoms DB.

This night the copy activity had to retry 87 times...

30th of august it "only" retried 17 times , and some time before time before that ran without having to retry..

what could be the reason , and any solutions?

    hi! the issue was at the source side. the operation took to much time. this was because we had 7.5 million documents, and the field that I was filtering on was not indexed. So after indexing the values in the monogo DB , everything now runs smoothly.
