Once a test suite is set up, how often do recommend to run it?

Assuming that running a test suite doesn't break anything, then the simple answer is: as often as possible.

But that may be too simplistic.

Some factors that you may also want to consider include: (1) whether or not there have been substantial changes to the product being tested; (2) how many errors were detected the last time -- if it was a large number then re-runing the suite would be "overkill"; and (3) how long the suite takes to complete (if it is very quick, no problem; but it it is long and ties up a lot of machine resources then maybe a daily or weekly schedule would be better).
