No Description

View test history (1) Run this test again Return to test menu

Result: Discarded

The test labeled "not" was the faster by 0.0848 seconds, (6.613% faster)

not 100%
ob_start() 93.387%

The not test took 1.1972 seconds.
The ob_start() test took 1.282 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 289,511 loops for a total of 5,790,220 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000015) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (4.239) milliseconds per 289,511 loops.
  • Total difference 84.78 milliseconds for 5,790,220 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (10.9785) milliseconds and Code 2 was (6.1052) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

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

ob_start();

for ($i = 0; $i < 20; $i++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = $i * 2;

ob_end_clean();

The second test, "not", was:

for ($i = 0; $i < 20; $i++)
	$GLOBALS['dummy2'] = $i * 2;
