Log.e("working", "onCompleted");

public void onError(Throwable e) {
Log.e("working", "onComThrowablepleted");

public void onNext(Object o) {
Log.e("working", "onNext");

You can use interval, takeUntil, timer and concatWith : The idea is to use interval and stop it after 30 minutes, then use another interval.

 // 1 events per minutes
 Observable.interval(1, MINUTES)
           // and stop it after 30 minutes
           .takeUntil(Observable.timer(30, MINUTES))
           // then 1 events per 5 minutes, and stop it after 30 minutes
           .concatWith(Observable.interval(5, MINUTES).takeUntil(Observable.timer(30, MINUTES)))
           // perform webservice call
           .flatMap(time ->
