Site Loading Time

I was coding a web page which is over 600 lines of PHP codes. I was wondering how many seconds the server would take to load the web page. Because there are lot of control structures and loops to be executed.

How I achieved the need simply is described below.

Add the following code snippet to the PHP file(the line before the <html> tag starts).

$startTime = microtime();
$startArray = explode(" ", $startTime);
$startTime = $startArray[1] + $startArray[0];

Add the following code snippet to the PHP file(as soon the </html> tag was closed).

$endTime = microtime();
$endArray = explode(" ", $endTime);
$endTime = $endArray[1] + $endArray[0];
$totalTimeTaken = $endTime - $startTime;
$totalTimeTaken = round($totalTimeTaken,10);
echo "Load Time: ";
printf ("%f\n", $totalTimeTaken);

The method is simple what it does is store the time in micro seconds and get the difference when the <html> tag is printed and the </html> tag is printed. The differnence is the time required to load the page. Actually the correct word is  “Total Time taken to render the page”

Stupid and Simple.
