Thank you both for your answers. They were really helpful.

I've got another question, though. Is there some easy way to graph the execution-time of a check? For instance, I would like to graph the response-time of our portal, is there some existing method to graph it?

Even easier is to have cron set an override.  You can use something like the following.  It can be placed inside a service or a group.

        cron "0 13 * * 5" {
            func: override
            text: This server is overridden because there is no reason to check non-production boxes on evenings and weekends.  The current override is for the weekend.
            mode: manual
            expires: 219600
            quiet: no
