Test: rand more vs. less

No Description

Run this test again Return to test menu

Result: Discarded

The test labeled "less" was the faster by 0.0737 seconds, (7.078% faster)

less 100%
more 92.922%

The less test took 0.9673 seconds.
The more test took 1.041 seconds.


Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 273,467 loops for a total of 5,469,340 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000013) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (3.684) milliseconds per 273,467 loops.
  • Total difference 73.68 milliseconds for 5,469,340 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (6.6812) milliseconds and Code 2 was (1.1486) 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);
