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 0.0572 seconds, (9.355% faster)

more 100%
less 90.645%

The more test took 0.5538 seconds.
The less test took 0.611 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 148,444 loops for a total of 2,968,880 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000019) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (2.858) milliseconds per 148,444 loops.
  • Total difference 57.16 milliseconds for 2,968,880 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (1.4933) milliseconds and Code 2 was (3.2734) 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);
