Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "time()" was the faster by 0.0368 seconds, (6.291% faster)
The time() test took 0.5475 seconds.
The strtotime('now') test took 0.5842 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 135,507 loops for a total of 2,710,140 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000014) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (1.838) milliseconds per 135,507 loops.
- Total difference 36.76 milliseconds for 2,710,140 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.8551) milliseconds and Code 2 was (3.0873) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.
The first test, "time()", was:
for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++) $GLOBALS['dummy'] = time();
The second test, "strtotime('now')", was:
for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++) $GLOBALS['dummy'] = strtotime('now');
