Sometimes you want to know how long a script took and how much memory it consumed.

Run Time and Memory used can also be useful if tracked overtime, for example in:

While tools such as New Relic (paid), DataDog (paid), NetData (opensource), Prometheus (opensource) could be used, sometimes a simpler local solution is all that is needed.

Here is a simple Trait to extend your classes with

<?php

namespace App\Traits;

trait Stats
{
    private $timer_start;
    private $timer_finish;

    public function statsTimerStart()
    {
        $this->timer_start = microtime(true);
    }

    public function statsTimerFinish()
    {
        $this->timer_finish = microtime(true);
    }

    public function statsTimerRuntime()
    {
        if (empty($this->timer_finish)) {
            $this->statsTimerFinish();
        }


        $runtime = $this->timer_finish - $this->timer_start;
        return gmdate('H:i:s', $runtime);
    }

    public function statsMemoryUsed()
    {
        $memory_used = memory_get_peak_usage(true);

        return $this->statsFormatBytes($memory_used);
    }

    public function statsFormatBytes(int $bytes, int $precision = 2)
    {
        $units = ['B', 'KB', 'MB', 'GB', 'TB', 'PB'];
        $unit_index = 0;

        while ($bytes > 1024) {
            $bytes /= 1024;
            $unit_index++;
        }
        return round($bytes, $precision) . $units[$unit_index];
    }

 

Basic usage:

$this->statsTimerStart()

.. do stuff ..

log 'stuff processed in ' . $this->statsTimerRuntime() . ' using ' . $this->statsMemoryUsed();
