fsockopen() 98.414%

The stream_socket_client() test took 0.7946 seconds.
The fsockopen() test took 0.8074 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 204,939 loops for a total of 4,098,789 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 204,939 loops.
  • Total difference 12.80 milliseconds for 4,098,789 loops

The iteration variablity for Code 1 was (0.0000) milliseconds and Code 2 was (0.0000) milliseconds. The lower and the closer together there values are the more accurate the results are.

Code

The first test, "stream_socket_client()", was:

$fp = stream_socket_client('tcp://127.0.0.1:80', $errno, $error);
fclose($fp);

The second test, "fsockopen()", was:

$fp = fsockopen('127.0.0.1', 80, $errno, $error);
fclose($fp);
