Test: rand more vs. less

No Description

Run this test again Return to test menu

Result: Discarded

The test labeled "more" was the faster by 0.0149 seconds, (1.754% faster)

more 100%
less 98.246%

The more test took 0.8367 seconds.
The less test took 0.8517 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 229,353 loops for a total of 4,587,060 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.747) milliseconds per 229,353 loops.
  • Total difference 14.94 milliseconds for 4,587,060 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.0485) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.2610) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.


The first test, "more", was:

$GLOBALS['dummy'] = rand(0, 16384);

The second test, "less", was:

$GLOBALS['dummy'] = rand(0, 32);
