A few hours from now :-)

I've found out what the problem was, so it should be gone now.

There's a general way of doing that with graphs that have multiple
views. Add "LARRD:*,apache:apache|apache1|apache2|apache3" to the
entry in bb-hosts.

The result will be unreliable. It will probably check all of them, 
but when reporting the results it will report two results for the same
status. So if the first test is "red" and the second is "green",
you'll get a downtime lasting a fraction of a second. It might trigger
an alert, it might not.
