timeit — Time the execution of small bits of Python code. — PyMOTW 3
The timeit module provides a simple interface for determining the execution time of small bits of Python code. It uses a platform-specific time function to provide the most accurate time calculation possible and reduces the impact of start-up or shutdown costs on the time calculation by executing the code repeatedly.
