Hi Chris,

if you do get it working, any chance you could share your script?

Subject: page load times using curl

I was wondering if there is a way to use curl to record the number of
seconds it takes to load the entire page for specific URL, including
ALL text and images? It must follow all links required to build that
page as some images are served from different directories.

I can only seem to get curl to read the text portion of a URL.

My intention here is to cron a script every 5 minutes that will count
the number of seconds it takes to load the entire URL page so I can
graph them to create historical performance graphs. Thought if I am
able to use curl, I can use unix's time command in front of it but
stated above, curl gets the html dump but doesn't include graphics.

If curl isn't the best fit for this, maybe something else exists?
