How do you decide when to increase metronome speed?

Hi, I'm new here...

I'm not looking for a definitive answer of course...just wondering where you guys set the bar for increasing metronome speed.

Usually after I practice an exercise for a while and do not feel rushed at all, I try to play it for four minutes straight before I move the metronome up. Of course its not going to be 100% super-clean the whole time, but could it be? I'm usually happy if there are no major flaws and maybe a few minor flaws. Really tiny problems I try to fix but ultimately don't care about as much.

I just feel like if I could find absolutely no flaws (from a player's standpoint, not a listener's), it'd probably be luck.
