Result: Discarded

The test labeled "md5()" was the faster by 0.0002 seconds, (0.022% faster)

md5() 100%
sha1() 99.978%

The md5() test took 1.0294 seconds.
The sha1() test took 1.0296 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 273,333 loops for a total of 5,466,660 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000000) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.011) milliseconds per 273,333 loops.
  • Total difference 0.22 milliseconds for 5,466,660 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (2.2497) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.9985) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "md5()", was:

$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = md5($GLOBALS['dummy']);

The second test, "sha1()", was:

$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = sha1($GLOBALS['dummy']);
