The fsockopen() test took 0.7859 seconds.

Nitty-Gritty

Each test case ran 20 random code order iterations consisting of 193,644 loops for a total of 3,872,880 runs.

  • Line execution difference (0.000003) milliseconds.
  • Avg difference (0.000) milliseconds per 193,644 loops.
  • Total difference 11.38 milliseconds for 3,872,880 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);
