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 0.0451 seconds, (3.446% faster)

more 100%
less 96.554%

The more test took 1.2639 seconds.
The less test took 1.309 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 291,069 loops for a total of 5,821,380 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000008) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (2.256) milliseconds per 291,069 loops.
  • Total difference 45.11 milliseconds for 5,821,380 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (7.2943) milliseconds and Code 2 was (6.8312) 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);
