For all sessions started within the last five minutes (5 mins ago, 4 mins ago, etc.):

SELECT *
FROM session
WHERE sessionStart >= DATEADD(MINUTE, -5, CONVERT(CHAR(16), GETDATE(), 120))


For all sessions started within the 5th min. ago only :
SELECT *
FROM session
WHERE sessionStart >= DATEADD(MINUTE, -5, CONVERT(CHAR(16), GETDATE(), 120)) AND sessionStart < DATEADD(MINUTE, -4, CONVERT(CHAR(16), GETDATE(), 120))
