This class is able to measure time (in seconds) elapsed in a particular period. Example:
timer = torch.Timer() -- the Timer starts to count now x = 0 for i=1,1000000 do x = x + math.sin(x) end print('Time elapsed for 1,000,000 sin: ' .. timer:time().real .. ' seconds')
Timer Class Constructor and Methods
Returns a new
Timer. The timer starts to count the time now.
Reset the timer accumulated time to
0. If the timer was running, the timer
restarts to count the time now. If the timer was stopped, it stays stopped.
Resume a stopped timer. The timer restarts to count the time, and addition the accumulated time with the time already counted before being stopped.
Stop the timer. The accumulated time counted until now is stored.
Returns a table reporting the accumulated time elapsed until now. Following the UNIX shell
there are three fields in the table:
real: the wall-clock elapsed time.
user: the elapsed CPU time. Note that the CPU time of a threaded program sums time spent in all threads.
sys: the time spent in system usage.
