Hi Matt,

You can try this.
Create a user defined variable e.g. TestLength.

Put the TestLength value equal to the length of your
testrun e.g. 300 (for 5 mins).

In your monitor threadgroup click the scheduler
checkbox and set the startup delay to 0.
Set the duration to

In your other threadgroups click the scheduler
checkbox and set the startup delay to 60.
Set the duration to ${TestLength}.

I think this will work, I had something similar in a
test script before.
You don't need the variable but it is useful if you
need to change things later.
