Result: DiscardedThe test labeled "microtime(true)" was the faster by 0.0491 seconds, (3.877% faster)
The microtime(true) test took 1.2164 seconds.
The time() test took 1.2655 seconds.
Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 266,051 loops for a total of 5,321,020 runs.
- Line execution difference (0.000009) milliseconds.
- Avg difference (2.453) milliseconds per 266,051 loops.
- Total difference 49.07 milliseconds for 5,321,020 loops
The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (11.6201) milliseconds and Code 2 was (9.3965) 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);
