Result: Discarded

The test labeled "short" was the faster by 0.0244 seconds, (2.053% faster)

short 100%
long 97.947%

The short test took 1.1658 seconds.
The long test took 1.1902 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 266,009 loops for a total of 5,320,180 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000005) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (1.222) milliseconds per 266,009 loops.
  • Total difference 24.43 milliseconds for 5,320,180 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (3.0611) milliseconds and Code 2 was (4.0271) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "short", was:

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

The second test, "long", was:

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