Recommended Posts

P/Invoke QueryPerformanceCounter and QueryPerformanceFrequency, something like this:

// $Id: Timer.cs 411 2003-04-19 00:20:22Z Arild $

using System;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;

namespace Utils
/// <summary>

/// A high precision timer for performance measurement purposes.

/// </summary>

public class Timer
public Timer()
this.startTime = 0;
this.endTime = 0;

QueryPerformanceFrequency( out this.frequency );

public void Start()
QueryPerformanceCounter( out this.startTime );

public void End()
QueryPerformanceCounter( out this.endTime );

public double Interval
get{ return (double)(this.endTime-this.startTime)/(double)frequency; }

private static extern bool QueryPerformanceCounter(out long lpPerformanceCount);
private static extern bool QueryPerformanceFrequency(out long lpFrequency);

private long startTime;
private long endTime;
private long frequency;
