Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "time()" was the faster by 0.0135 seconds, (1.386% faster)
The time() test took 0.9588 seconds.
The microtime(true) test took 0.9723 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 264,875 loops for a total of 5,297,500 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.674) milliseconds per 264,875 loops.
- Total difference 13.48 milliseconds for 5,297,500 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.9860) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.7410) 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);
