NPM Version NPM Downloads Node.js Version Build Status Test Coverage

Description

The most high resolution timing in NodeJs

This module provide cross platform function rdtsc().

rdtsc() return counts the number of cycles since computer start

If you run in on Windows it will call C++ function __rdtsc() that call processor command RDTSC (Read Time Stamp Counter)

(rdtsc() - rdtsc()) is always < 0

Notice: you should not use parallel threads since you calc performance

Install

npm i rdtsc -S

Features

RDTSC

var { rdtsc } = require('rdtsc')
console.log(rdtsc()) // 3864063236708616 cycles
console.log(rdtsc() - rdtsc()) // -2971 cycles, minimum = -130 cycles

Calc Performance

Accuracy: +/- 4 cycles

Syntax

/*
 
calcPerformance(testTimeMilliseconds, ...funcs)
 
result = {
    calcInfo: { 
        iterationCycles: 413.22476287663505,
        iterations: 5622917,
        funcsCount: 3,
        testTime: 1000 // milliseconds
    },
    cycles: [ 54n, 54n, 55n ], // is BigInt
    absoluteDiff: [ 0, 0 ], // cycles[i] - cycles[0]
    relativeDiff: undefined, // absoluteDiff[i] / absoluteDiff[0]
