Azure Spot VM time limits

Is there a hard time limit that an Azure Spot VM can run for before it will be evicted? Or will it continue to run as long as the bid price is high enough and there is spare capacity in the region in use?

When we were testing Azure Low Priority VMs previously, we found that a large percentage (maybe all?) of our VMs were terminated after running for 24 hours.

@MarkWhitney-7466 , There is no bidding with Azure Spot. You either select evict for capacity only (Price up to PAYG - "-1") or evict for Capacity or price (for which you will enter a price in USD above the current Spot price). There is no hard time as it will be based on capacity or price depending on what you select
