Determine How Fast Your ASP Scripts Really Are

Often when you're developing script, you may want to determine just how fast the code takes to run. To do so, take advantage of ASP's built-in Timer function. As you may know, this function returns the number of seconds since midnight. To use this function, capture the current value before your script runs, then again afterwards, and compare the two. While this method can vary depending on processor speeds, it provides a decent benchmark.

<% myStart = timer %>
Start: <%= myStart%>

For x = 1 to 1000
set myObj = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
set myObj = nothing
myEnd = timer%>
End: <%=myEnd%>

Ellapsed Time: <%= myEnd - myStart %> (seconds)
