Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "strtotime('now')" was the faster by 0.0017 seconds, (0.154% faster)
The strtotime('now') test took 1.0901 seconds.
The time() test took 1.0918 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 282,539 loops for a total of 5,650,780 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000000) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.084) milliseconds per 282,539 loops.
- Total difference 1.68 milliseconds for 5,650,780 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.3081) milliseconds and Code 2 was (4.0622) 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');
