How do I measure the execution time of JavaScript code with callbacks?



I have a piece of JavaScript code that I am executing using the node.js interpreter.

for(var i = 1; i < LIMIT; i++) {
  var user = {
    id: i,
    name: "MongoUser [" + i + "]"
  };
  db.users.save(user, function(err, saved) {
    if(err || !saved) {
      console.log("Error");
    } else {
      console.log("Saved");
    }
  });
}

How can I measure the time taken by these database insert operations? I could compute the difference of date values after and before this piece of code but that would be incorrect because of the asynchronous nature of the code.

Answer

Use the Node.js console.time() and console.timeEnd():

var i;
console.time("dbsave");

for(i = 1; i < LIMIT; i++){
    db.users.save({id : i, name : "MongoUser [" + i + "]"}, end);
}

end = function(err, saved) {
    console.log(( err || !saved )?"Error":"Saved");
    if(--i === 1){console.timeEnd("dbsave");}
};
