Setting up Configuration to test multiple URIs of same website

Setting up Configuration to test multiple URIs of same website
I am new to this software and I am trying to figure out how to set up this tool so I can create a test (or tests) that will run 3-5 webpagetest's per URL for a list of 10 different URLs (all on the same domain) and using 3 different web browsers(IE,Chrome,Firefox) a piece to run this test.
So this would be a total of 3-5 tests per URL X 10 Different URLs X 3 different web browsers.

I don't believe this is possible with the RESTful API, but if it is please let me know how I can do that.

As of right now, I though I needed to set up a private instance to do this but I am not exactly sure how I will achieve that goal with this private instance. Is it possible to do what I am wanting? And if so, what is the best way to go about doing this? I have been reading through all the documentation and am a little confused. Would writing a tool to interact with the RESTful API be a better way to go? And if so, how do I interact with it? Would it just be by submitting HTTP requests like normal?

Thanks for your help,

I'm new to this type of development.

RE: Setting up Configuration to test multiple URIs of same website
It is possible (and quite trivial) to do through the restful API but each of the tests is a separate test. You can't submit the full set of permutations all as a single test.

The bulktest sample ( http://webpagetest.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/bulktest/ ) or python batchtool ( http://webpagetest.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/batchtool/ ) should both be able to do what you want as far as submitting the tests goes. Analyzing the results would be something you'd have to do separately.

I know some people have also hooked google docs spreadsheets up to the rest API for doing something similar but I don't have any of those experiments handy.
