Hi, can you give an example post command to use curl or lynx to schedule the task for automation with cron? That would be very helpful. Thanks

If you are using the desktop version with URLBlast you can't control it over http. URLBlast can look for text files and run tests based on the text file but that may be more involved than you are looking for.
If you are looking to automate the hosted version (private instance or public instance) you can do that over http with a rest API. I'll see about posting the docs for that (though if you cron it to run too frequently on the public instance I may end up blocking it so try not to abuse it).

I'm a graduation student.
Few weeks back I had visited this site...as I was surfing net to get solution for similar kind of automation problem with my PC......When I tried the suggestion mentioned here my problem was resolved so just came back here to give Thanks.

I would like to have more information about that and the rest API you were talking about.
Actually I would like to run daily tests (with the desktop version on my server) and export the CSV results of loading page in order to have monthly reports and graphs on excel

I tried to use the runtest.php with the ?url= parameter on my desktop version of pagetest but it didn't worked, do you have any idea from where it could come from ? Not yet implemented in 1.6 version ?
As I said in my previous post, I would like to use it on my computer to have monthly or weekly information about my page loading time.

That works, I upgraded to version 1.7 and now it runs perfectly !
Now I have to creat some crons and extract data in order to draw charts !
