Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "strtotime('now')" was the faster by 0.0098 seconds, (0.933% faster)
The strtotime('now') test took 1.0391 seconds.
The time() test took 1.0489 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 292,591 loops for a total of 5,851,820 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000002) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.489) milliseconds per 292,591 loops.
- Total difference 9.78 milliseconds for 5,851,820 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.0787) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.0099) 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');
