the configuration looks OK ... what the problem is? (please provide the error 
messages or describe the expected behaviour vs. reality).

If you use the "every <x> cycles" option, the cycle length is set with the 
global "set daemon <y>" => if you want to run it once per 15 minutes, with that 
configuration the "set daemon 60" should approximately do the trick.

Note that monit scheduler  currently isn't wall-clock based ... the cycle 
length is variable (based on number of tests and timeouts ... the "set daemon" 
sets the sleep interval between cycles => even with 15 * 60 it won't be exactly 
15 minutes as the time consumed by the cycle itself is not included. We will 
fix this in the future - the monit scheduler will allow the run the tests at 
exact time.
