Setting up baseline metrics - israelda - 05-02-2018 09:28 AM

We're working on starting to measure speed and perf and a first step is to get a baseline. I've been measuring a single URL, once a week, and putting a bunch of metrics in a spreadsheet.

Would like to start using the webpage test API to automate this and have it run once a day, and automatically store the results of the metrics I'm tracking.

It seems like I would need to call the api - http://www.webpagetest.org/runtest.php?url=www.aol.com and then grab the result url, go there and then parse the json to grab and store the metrics I want to track.

Does that make sense?
