Hey,

Is there a way to measure the time it takes to measure how long it takes to execute a MySQL Command in MySQL?

Thanks!

Use a profiler:

Hey there,

I'm sorry but I am unable to see how I would implement that. I'm still rather new to MySQL.

I'm needing to hard code whatever it is that can do this, into my VB.Net Windows Form Application.

The database is external, and I am only able to access it via PHPMyAdmin.

A profiler can be used in remote DBs as well.

A profiler is not a code, it's just a software which you start up and then run your code normally.
The profiler then will record each access to the database that your code does and will tell how many time it took for the query to get fully executed and alot of other statistics.

When you start the profiler up, it asks you the server name and etc.

If you don't want to use a profiler, then you can use a brenchmark.
If you are not willing to spend some money in some proprietary software to do this.
Then you can simply use GetTickCount() to do the trick.

You use it before and after the execution and the subtract one by another to see how many time it took to execute that branch.


bfore = GetTickCount();
//branch of code goes here
after = GetTickCount();

Execution_time = after - before;//miliseconds

Forgot to mention, remember that GetTickCount is an API.

So you have to import it:
Private Declare Function GetTickCount Lib "kernel32" () As Long

Hi Letsgetcoding;

To find out how long it takes between the time you execute the query in your program until you get the results back you can implement this code.

Dim queryExecuteTime As New Stopwatch()

queryExecuteTime.Reset()
queryExecuteTime.Start()

' Place the single line of code that executes the MySQL query here

queryExecuteTime.Stop()

MessageBox.Show(queryExecuteTime.ElapsedMilliseconds & " milliseconds")

Open in new window
