Timer

MRCPP comes with its own timer class which can be used by the application program:

#include "MRCPP/Timer"

Available functions

start
Start clock from zero.
resume
Resume clock from previous stopped time.
stop
Stop clock.
elapsed
Get current time (in sec).

Examples

The timer records wall (human) time, not CPU user time. The clock will by default start immediately after construction, and will keep running until explicitly stopped. The elapsed time can be evaluated while clock is running.

mrcpp::Timer timer;                         // This will start the timer
mrcpp::project(prec, tree, func);           // Do some work
double t = timer.elapsed();                 // Get time since clock started while still running

The timer can also be started explicitly at a later stage after construction, as well as explicitly stopped after the work is done. Then the elapsed() function will return the time spent between start() and stop():

mrcpp::Timer timer(false);                  // This will not start the timer
timer.start();                              // This will start the timer
mrcpp::project(prec, tree, func);           // Do some work
timer.stop();                               // This will stop the timer
double t = timer.elapsed();                 // Get time spent between start and stop
