How do I speed up Nagios?

Hi EE peeps!

I've got a Nagios server I've built in Ubuntu 11.10 (my first Nagios server) and it's now checking some 51 services over 15 hosts.  When testing the latest services to make sure they're being monitored correctly I've found it's now taking quite some minutes to get round to checking things.  Is it possible to speed the checking process up to allow less of a delay between something happening and it being picked up by Nagios?
I've read up on the nagios.cfg file and I'm not 100% sure which values need to be changed.
Any help on this would be gratefully recieved.

I believe this is taken care of in the actual service defenition /usr/local/nagios/etc/hosts/<service config files>

Or in the service defenition template in the ../objects directory

the line is 'normal_check_interval'
normally = 5 minutes but can be changed to anything you want
