If I want to start counting time somewhere in my code and then get the passed time in order to measure the time it took to execute few function what should i do? I have used the timeit module but is this the right way?

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)
 

This gives the execution time in seconds.
