Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "microtime(true)" was the faster by 0.0181 seconds, (1.425% faster)
The microtime(true) test took 1.2532 seconds.
The time() test took 1.2713 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 287,182 loops for a total of 5,743,640 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.906) milliseconds per 287,182 loops.
- Total difference 18.11 milliseconds for 5,743,640 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (14.0009) milliseconds and Code 2 was (14.2565) 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);
