time.time or time.clock
I'm having some cross platform issues with timing loops. It seems
time.time is better for some computers/platforms and time.clock others, but
it's not always clear which, so I came up with the following to try to
# Determine if time.time is better than time.clock
# The one with better resolution should be lower.
if time.clock() - time.clock() < time.time() - time.time():
clock = time.clock
clock = time.time
Will this work most of the time, or is there something better?
On Jan 14, 7:05 am, Ron Ad...time.clock() or time.time()
What's the difference between time.clock() and time.time()
(and please don't say clock() is the CPU clock and time() is the actual
time because that doesn't help me at all :)
I'm trying to benchmark some function calls for Zope project and when I
use t0=time.clock(); foo(); print time.clock()-t0
I get much smaller values than when I use time.clock() (most of them
0.0 but some 0.01)
When I use time.time() I get values like 0.0133562088013,
To me it looks like time.time() gives a better measure (at least from a
statistical practical point of view).
am I doing this wrong:
print (time.time() / 60) / 60 #time.time has been running for many hours
if time.time() was (21600/60) then that would equal 360/60 which would
be 6, but I'm not getting 6 so I'm not doing the division right, any tips?

So, I was blazin' some mad chronix, as they say, and got on to thinking
The question was, is the statement:
time.time() < time.time()
always true? Seems it should be false, since the statement itself
occurs at one time instant.. but of course we know that python doesn't
execute code that way.. So my question is, why doesn't Python work this
(PS, I wasn't smoking anything, its a figure of speech :) )

I am trying to measure some system response time by using the time.time
() or time.clock() in my script. However, the numbers I get are in
10s of milliseconds.
1248481670.34 #from time.time()
0.08 #from time.clock()
That won't work for me, since the response time may be only a few

I'm using Python to parse a bunch of s/w test files and make csv files for later report generation by MS ACCESS....(my boss
loves the quick turn-around compared to C). Each log file may contain one or more 'sessions', and each session may contain
one or more 'nodes'.
Each session in the log has an ASCII start and stop time, as does each node.
I have the basic parse part done for parameters, errors, etc., but noticed my routine for determining how long each
session/node took (delta time) was a bit repetitive, so decided to make a 'stand-alone' routine to handle th...?TIME????????????????=/=/=/TIME?????? ?j???=/=/=/??????????
today I encountered a very odd situation. I am on Windows Vista and usin=
Python 2.5.2. Here's a code snippet to illustrate my problem:

With the line commented time.time() returns a changing value which is wh=
I expect. However, when I uncomment it and create a Direct3D9 Device =
 it keeps printing the very same number over and over! In my proje=
I am using twisted which uses time.time() to schedule all calls. Since =
time.time() is completely screwed the whole application breaks.
I took a look at , but I can't see any obivous way how this all =
interacts. Specifically I am not sure which API time.time() uses =
internally (timeGetTime maybe?). Knowing this could probably help me deb=
more. I feel like time.time() should not break (unless the vid card =
driver/directx has a major bug). Any idea what might be happening here?
Replacing time.time() with time.clock() in twisted.python.runtime makes =
the problem disappear. I guess because it uses QueryPerformanceCounter.

Nitro <nitro@dr-c...time sync? time servers give wrong time
I'm in toronto. Eastern Standard time. I use netdate linux to sync my
clock. I use:
/usr/sbin/netdate -l 2 localhost 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11
This was working fine until last week when the DST changed. Now it
reports one hour behind. Every name server does this. For example:
localhost +0.000 Thu Mar 13 19:17:51.519

I'm guessing there is an easy way to do this but I keep going around
in circles in the documentation.
I have a time stamp that looks like this (corresponding to UTC time):
start_time = '2007-03-13T15:00:00Z'
I want to convert it to my local time.
start_time = time.mktime(time.strptime(start_time, '%Y-%m-%dT%H:%M:
start_time -= time.timezone
This was working fine now, but if I do it for a date next week (such
as March 13th in the above example), it breaks because my local time
moves to daylight savings time this weekend. So my time is now off by
an hour....convert time in and time out
because I have a list of data that contains Clock_in and Clock_out,
how can I know the total hours that have been used where I have

how can I know the total hours that have been used?
by the way, did I need to create two new data to merge togather
Not sure what you have or did. If those numbers represent the number
of seconds since midnight, and you don't have any in and out
combinations that span across midnight, you could use something like:
input clock_in clock_out;
format x y time.;

I cant seem to get localtime to work, can anyone share some gotchas?

ir...timing and timing reports (again)
ich have question about timing.
i have an edk design with microblaze (using spartan 3e 500) where i
use an ip core that i wrote myself.
when i implement the design i get the following timing output in my
Constraint | Check | Worst Case | Best
Case | Timing | Timing
Slack | Achievable | Errors | Score
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------...Times Returned by TIME()
I would have posted this on the Quicksilver group but couldn't find it.
We have a Quicksilver system that picks up files from a Windows eftpos
application. There have been some slowdowns in the process and we've
added some logging to identify the culprit. When the QS app detects a
file, it writes a log record using time derived from TIME(). It shells
out to a Clipper app which returns ADIR() data on the file. What we are
finding on the test PC (XP) is that the ADIR() time of the file is
approximately 2 seconds later than the TIME() value recorded.
Does anyone have an explanation?
Th...Time Divided by Time is What?
I thought a time quantity divided by a time quantity would be a real,
but it seems to be an integer. Can anyone confirm that? I can't find a

Yes, time/time is an integer. If you need more precision than integer than you can do something like this as an example...
Kevi...Timing run time
I would like to compare the speed of two algorithms
solving the same problem.
As far as I understood, the tic-toc command gives
the time difference between the beginning and the
end of the computation, without taking into account
the time spent by the processor doing something else.
I'm using a multi-processor multi-users machine and
the CPU time used by my process is not 100% and
is not constant. The measured speeds are fluctuating
so much that I can hardly conclude anything.
Is it possible to obtain realistic measurements of
the speed of my algorithms?
Thanks for your help

You're welcome, but before ask, try to google a bit...

on a timestamp, what's the best way to make the timestamp show as my
time, rather than the server's time?
i.e., it is 10:49 am here but the code on the server will create a
timestamp of 2:49 pm. I want it to be stamped as 10:49 am

If you stored the time value as a DateTime data type, you can display it
in 24hr time using the Format() function:
