Set the interval of the bbnet task in hobbitlaunch.cfg on your servers running 
this task. However, you may want to verify the trends on the graphs on the 
bbtest pages for these hosts first, to verify whether you have in the past been 
able to complete all network testing in that time reliably.

No, network testing intervals are not necessarily aligned to the RRD graph

No, only for the task. However, you can run multiple bbnet tasks, and have 
them test different devices ...
