Simple way to measure cell execution time in ipython notebook
I would like to get the time spent on the cell execution in addition to the original output from cell.
To this end, I tried
%%timeit -r1 -n1 but it doesn't expose the variable defined within cell.
%%time works for cell which only contains 1 statement.
In: %%time 1 CPU times: user 4 µs, sys: 0 ns, total: 4 µs Wall time: 5.96 µs Out: 1 In: %%time # Notice there is no out result in this case. x = 1 x CPU times: user 3 µs, sys: 0 ns, total: 3 µs Wall time: 5.96 µs
What's the best way to do it?
I have been using Execute Time in Nbextension for quite some time now. It is great.
Use cell magic and this project on github by Phillip Cloud:
Load it by putting this at the top of your notebook or put it in your config file if you always want to load it by default:
%install_ext https://raw.github.com/cpcloud/ipython-autotime/master/autotime.py %load_ext autotime
If loaded, every output of subsequent cell execution will include the time in min and sec it took to execute it.
