timer-cm

A Python context manager for measuring execution time. Useful in conjunction with Python's profilers, or on its own.

Installation

pip install timer_cm

Usage

First, import the Timer class:

from timer_cm import Timer

Then use it as a context manager. In this example we use Python's sleep(...) function to pause execution for one second:

with Timer('Simple task'):
    sleep(1)

This produces the following output:

Simple task: 1.005s

Often you want to know where a long running code block spends its time. Use timer.child(name) to track individual steps:

with Timer('Long task') as timer:
    with timer.child('large step'):
        sleep(1)
    for _ in range(5):
        with timer.child('small step'):
            sleep(.5)

Output:

Long task: 3.506s
  5x small step: 2.503s (71%)
  1x large step: 1.001s (28%)

To measure times throughout the entire run of your application and report total running times at the end:

from timer_cm import Timer

_TIMER = Timer('my_fn')

def my_fn():
	# Suppose this function is called throughout your application.
	with _TIMER.child('step 1'):
		...
	with _TIMER.child('step 2'):
		...
	...

import atexit
atexit.register(_TIMER.print_results)
