Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "strtotime('now')" was the faster by 0.0239 seconds, (3.074% faster)
The strtotime('now') test took 0.7543 seconds.
The time() test took 0.7782 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 162,114 loops for a total of 3,242,280 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000007) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (1.196) milliseconds per 162,114 loops.
- Total difference 23.93 milliseconds for 3,242,280 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (4.9777) milliseconds and Code 2 was (5.3043) 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');
