Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "microtime(true)" was the faster by 0.0781 seconds, (11.439% faster)
The microtime(true) test took 0.6044 seconds.
The time() test took 0.6825 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 126,869 loops for a total of 2,537,380 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000031) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (3.904) milliseconds per 126,869 loops.
- Total difference 78.08 milliseconds for 2,537,380 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (7.6860) milliseconds and Code 2 was (4.5094) 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);
