Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "time()" was the faster by 0.0316 seconds, (5.396% faster)
The time() test took 0.5536 seconds.
The strtotime('now') test took 0.5851 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 124,156 loops for a total of 2,483,120 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000013) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (1.579) milliseconds per 124,156 loops.
- Total difference 31.57 milliseconds for 2,483,120 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.6861) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.8453) 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');
