Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "time()" was the faster by 0.0309 seconds, (5.237% faster)
The time() test took 0.5596 seconds.
The microtime(true) test took 0.5905 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 147,259 loops for a total of 2,945,180 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000011) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (1.546) milliseconds per 147,259 loops.
- Total difference 30.93 milliseconds for 2,945,180 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (3.0141) milliseconds and Code 2 was (4.7893) 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++) $GLOBALS['dummy'] = time();
The second test, "microtime(true)", was:
for ($i = 0; $i < 100; $i++) $GLOBALS['dummy'] = microtime(true);
