Description: BenchmarkIt is a php class that will allow you to benchmark an entire web site or just individual functions and scripts quickly and easily. Contents of Read Me File: Installation: To install BenchmarkIt on your website simply upload the benchmark.php file to any location on your web server. Usage: Append this code: include_once(<path to benchmark.php>/benchmark.php); $bench = new benchmark(<full path to logs directory>/logName.extension,prgVer,program Name); $bench->startMark(); to the very top of your php script For screen output append this code: if(!$bench->endMark()) {echo $bench->get(error);} if(!$bench->runTime()) {echo $bench->get(error);} if(!$bench->reportTime()) {echo $bench->get(error);} to the end of your script For log file output append this code: if(!$bench->endMark()) {echo $bench->get(error);} if(!$bench->runTime()) {echo $bench->get(error);} if(!$bench->logTime()) {echo $bench->get(error);} to the end of your script For screen and log file output append this code: if(!$bench->endMark()) {echo $bench->get(error);} if(!$bench->runTime()) {echo $bench->get(error);} if(!$bench->logTime()) {echo $bench->get(error);} if(!$bench->reportTime()) {echo $bench->get(error);} to the end of your script Turning BenchmarkIt on and off There is a flag in benchmark.php that will turn benchmarking on and off. Line 30 includes this code: define("IS_ON",1); If you turn the 1 to a 0 then BenchmarkIt will not report any results to the screen or the log file and all functions will return true to fool any error trapping you may have done. Except for reportTime which returns the null string when benchmarking is turned off. Functions startMark - starts the bench mark clock endMark - turns the bench mark clock off runTime - calculate the number of microseconds it took a program to run. logTime - records the benchmark in a log file for later use reportTime - echo the benchmark to the screen help - print the help screen for the user about - print the about screen for the user get - safely retrieves a class variable for the user Parameters: $What - the name of the class variable to return Acceptable Values: startTime, endTime, runLength, fileName, programName, pragramVer, error Credits: BenchmarkIt v1.0 Written By: J.

<h1 align=center>BenchmarkIt v1.0 Help Screen</h1>
<h2 align=center>Installation:</h2>
To install BenchmarkIt on your website simply upload the benchmark.php file to any location on your web server.<br>

<h2 align=center>Usage:</h2>
Append this code:<br><br>

<?highlight_string('include_once(\'<path to benchmark.php>/benchmark.php\');')?><br>
<?highlight_string('$bench = new benchmark(\'<full path to logs directory>/logName.extension\',\'prgVer\',\'program Name\');')?><br>
<?highlight_string('$bench->startMark();')?><br><br>

to the very top of your php script<br><br>

For screen output append this code:<br><br>

<?highlight_string('if(!$bench->endMark()) {echo $bench->get(\'error\');}')?><br>
<?highlight_string('if(!$bench->runTime()) {echo $bench->get(\'error\');}')?><br>
<?highlight_string('if(!$bench->reportTime()) {echo $bench->get(\'error\');}')?><br><br>

to the end of your script<br><br>

For log file output append this code:<br><br>

<?highlight_string('if(!$bench->endMark()) {echo $bench->get(\'error\');}')?><br>
<?highlight_string('if(!$bench->runTime()) {echo $bench->get(\'error\');}')?><br>
<?highlight_string('if(!$bench->logTime()) {echo $bench->get(\'error\');}')?><br><br>

to the end of your script<br><br>

For screen and log file output append this code:<br><br>

<?highlight_string('if(!$bench->endMark()) {echo $bench->get(\'error\');}')?><br>
<?highlight_string('if(!$bench->runTime()) {echo $bench->get(\'error\');}')?><br>
<?highlight_string('if(!$bench->logTime()) {echo $bench->get(\'error\');}')?><br>
<?highlight_string('if(!$bench->reportTime()) {echo $bench->get(\'error\');}')?><br><br>

to the end of your script<br><br>

<h2 align=center>Turning BenchmarkIt on and off</h2>
There is a flag in benchmark.php that will turn benchmarking on and off. Line 30 includes this code:<br><br>

<?highlight_string('define(\'IS_ON\',1);')?><br><br>

If you turn the 1 to a 0 then BenchmarkIt will not report any results to the screen or the log file
and all functions will return true to fool any error trapping you may have done. Except for reportTime
which returns the null string when benchmarking is turned off. This feature allows benchmarking to be
quickly and easily turned off for an entire set of scripts from a single location.<br><br>

<h2 align=center>Functions</h2>
<b>about</b> - print the about screen for the user<br>
<b>endMark</b> - turns the bench mark clock off<br>
<b>get</b> - safely retrieves a class variable for the user<br>
<blockquote>
    <b>Parameters:</b><br>
      &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;$What - the name of the class variable to return<br>
    <b>Acceptable Values:</b><br>
       &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;startTime, endTime, runLength, fileName, programName, pragramVer, error<br>
</blockquote>
<b>help</b> - print the help screen for the user<br>
<b>logTime</b> - records the benchmark in a log file for later use<br>
<b>reportTime</b> - echo the benchmark to the screen<br>
<b>runTime</b> - calculate the number of microseconds it took a program to run.<br>
<b>startMark</b> - starts the bench mark clock<br>
