C# Question

Timing a line of code accurately in a threaded application, C#

What is the most accurate way of timing a thread or a line of code in C# assuming the application is multithreaded?

Kind regards,

Answer

What exactly do you mean by "timing a thread"?

To just time (in wall time) how long something takes, use System.Diagnostics.Stopwatch. I don't believe there's anything to measure the processor time taken by a particular thread. Of course, profilers will help you a lot, but they also affect the timing of the program they're examining, which makes things trickier.
