Circuit breaker maxFailures - are these retries?

Hi team, wanted to understand about the maxFailures in circuit breaker.

If I set maxFailures as 5 - does it mean a call (if failed), will be retried 5 times before opening the circuit? Or does it mean 5 consecutive failures of different requests?

5 consecutive failures of operations going through the circuit breaker. The operations could be different requests, depending on if the application shares the circuit breaker between different requests.
