# StopWatch

Gregor von Laszewski (laszewski@gmail.com)

Often you find yourself in a situation where you like to measure the time between two events. We provide a simple StopWatch that allows you not only to measure a number of times but also to print them out in a convenient format.

from cloudmesh.common.StopWatch import StopWatch
from time import sleep

StopWatch.start("test")
sleep(1)
StopWatch.stop("test")

print (StopWatch.get("test"))


To print, you can simply also use:

StopWatch.benchmark()
