So in Java, we can do How to measure time taken by a function to execute
But how is it done in python? To measure the time start and end time between lines of codes?
Something that does this:
import some_time_library starttime = some_time_library.some_module() code_tobe_measured() endtime = some_time_library.some_module() time_taken = endtime - starttime
Now we will see solution for issue: How to measure time taken between lines of code in python?
If you want to measure CPU time, can use
time.process_time() for Python 3.3 and above:
import time start = time.process_time() # your code here print(time.process_time() - start)
First call turns the timer on, and second call tells you how many seconds have elapsed.
There is also a function
time.clock(), but it is deprecated since Python 3.3 and will be removed in Python 3.8.
There are better profiling tools like
profile, however time.process_time() will measure the CPU time and this is what you’re are asking about.
If you want to measure wall clock time instead, use
