[Tutor] Determining periodicity of rand.randint()

Has anyone ever measured how random (or deterministic) a given sequence of
numbers generated by rand.randint() are?

Using these arguments for rand.randint(0, 10000000 )
if a program which calls rand.randint() runs for 10 hours (or a few days),
will it keep generating a repeatable set of numbers at some point? I'm
trying to understand the periodicity (or lack of) of the numbers generated
by rand.randint()
