Yes you can configure it there but the default settings working normally
without problem also on my bigger systems.
The strange behavior on your system is that all checks are triggered at the
same time at 0:00.
One Test i would do is search for all services with the same name "Check_MK
Discovery" and then issue the manual reschedule command for all over a
given timeperiod of 60 minutes or so.

Command Menu -> Various Commands -> Reschedule active checks -> 60 min and

Now you should see all the discovery checks spread over 60 minutes and from
now on this should stay the same. If you see again at midnight all checks
at the same time then there is another problem inside your installation.
Something like the core makes an restart at 0:00 and forgets all the
planned states or forgets the old state.
