Result: SavedThe test labeled "time()" was the faster by 0.0081 seconds, (1.459% faster)
The time() test took 0.5442 seconds.
The microtime(true) test took 0.5522 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 153,525 loops for a total of 3,070,500 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.403) milliseconds per 153,525 loops.
- Total difference 8.06 milliseconds for 3,070,500 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.5592) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.6412) 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);
