Restore test: how often and what is the scope of the tests you do.

Hi, we’re wondering what is your approach for testing backups. We at the moment do a 3-2-1 backups, but only restore some files each week. For us is not possible to restore everything, VM, Databases, etc., since we have 50 servers with many different servers applications.
We use Netbackup and we backup to disk and then clone to tape. May be we can use the feature of Netbackup that allows starting the VM in only read mode from the appliance itself to check at least disk backups, but even with that is very time consuming. How do you manage it? Thanks!
