How to measure time elapsed in Python

0 votes
How should I use the timeit module if i want to start counting time somewhere in my code and then get the passed time. I think I am using the module wrong.

import timeit

start = timeit.timeit()
print "hello"
end = timeit.timeit()
print end - start

If you just want to measure the elapsed wall-clock time between two points, you could use time.time():

import time

start = time.time()
print("hello")
end = time.time()
print(end - start)
 

The following code gives the execution time in seconds.

Hope this helps!!
