Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "time()" was the faster by 0.123 seconds, (9.250% faster)
The time() test took 1.2066 seconds.
The microtime(true) test took 1.3296 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 260,920 loops for a total of 5,218,400 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000024) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (6.149) milliseconds per 260,920 loops.
- Total difference 122.98 milliseconds for 5,218,400 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (12.0782) milliseconds and Code 2 was (12.4551) 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);
