Result: SavedThe test labeled "time()" was the faster by 0.0157 seconds, (3.331% faster)
The time() test took 0.4557 seconds.
The microtime(true) test took 0.4714 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 132,239 loops for a total of 2,644,780 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000006) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (0.785) milliseconds per 132,239 loops.
- Total difference 15.70 milliseconds for 2,644,780 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.1272) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.2383) 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);
