Timing ASP Scripts

Environment: ASP .NET, ASP

Introduction

This article describes a simple function that gets the duration time call of your ASP scripts. It's very useful to find the time elapsed between two points in your ASP scripts (for example, a DB calls script).

How to Use the Program

First, you must include the following JavaScript functions in your ASP script:

function y2k(number)
{
   return (number < 1000) ? number + 1900 : number;
}
function milliDif()
{
   var d = new Date();
      return d.getTime()
}

function elapsedpretty(parm1)
{
  var elapsedsecs = 0
  var elapsedmins = 0

  elapsedsecs=Math.floor(parm1/1000)
  parm1=parm1%1000

  elapsedmins=Math.floor(elapsedsecs/60)
  elapsedsecs=elapsedsecs%60


elapsedpretty=elapsedmins + " minute"
if(elapsedmins!=1)
       elapsedpretty=elapsedpretty+"s"

elapsedpretty = elapsedpretty+" " + elapsedsecs+" second"
if(elapsedsecs!=1)
       elapsedpretty=elapsedpretty+"s"

elapsedpretty = elapsedpretty+ " "+parm1+" millisecond"
if(parm1!=1)
       elapsedpretty=elapsedpretty+"s"

  return elapsedpretty;
}

After that, just start your time counter with this line:

  '[start section to be evaluated]
  timeThen = milliDif()

Your ASP time-evaluated code must be between these two calls:

  'here some time consuming script code (like db calls,
  'for example)
  for i=1 to 2000000
    i  = i+1
  next

And, finish the time counter with this code:

  '[end section to be evaluated]
  timeNow = milliDif()
  elapsed =timeNow-timeThen
  msg     ="Process time in ms: " & elapsed & _
                                  elapsedpretty(elapsed)
  response.write msg
