Time the performance of portions of code and produce a report when done.

Project description

Swiss Time - A diagnostic code timer

Swiss Time is a diagnostic tool for finding slow spots in code. It sits somewhere between a raw timer and a profiler.


Once started, each call to tick() will record a time difference along a label that you provide.

In this way you build a timeline over the portion of code you are analyzing.

You can print a report of the results or gather report data to process your own way.


Import and start the timer at the beginning of the code you want to analyze.

>>> import swisstime
>>> swisstime.start()

At the end of each section you want measured, call tick() with a description of that piece of code:

>>> swisstime.tick("Load input image")

Do this after each section you are measuring:

>>> swisstime.tick("Build masks")

To display a report of your results, print the output of

>>> print( )

Your output will be a table of times and labels for each section you measured.

If you want the raw report data you can call:


to get a list of label/time tuples.

Calling start() will reset all data and begin the analysis again.
