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 0.0093 seconds, (1.739% faster)

more 100%
less 98.261%

The more test took 0.5251 seconds.
The less test took 0.5343 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 149,943 loops for a total of 2,998,860 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.465) milliseconds per 149,943 loops.
  • Total difference 9.29 milliseconds for 2,998,860 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.5050) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.7638) 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);
