    If it runs for an hour, I would consider that to be stable.

    I like to give it 2-3 hours to be sure, but I've heard of people running for up to 24 hours.

    I set it to do all tests and leave it to loop for 24 hours or so, that is about enough time for 3 or 4 loops.

    I generally run it for 12 hours at least, but you should be okay with 9 hours.
