Hello everybody! I'm trying to produce a timestamp (system time) in windows (Python 2.7) with resolution equal to or better than microseconds. Calling time.time() repeatedly in a loop it appears it only updates in approximately 0.01 second increments. Using datetime.datetime.today() seems to show similar results. Anybody have a possible way of getting a better timestamp?
It has better resolution as a timer but it doesn't give you the system time. If I could get time.clock's resolution in a timestamp I would be happy. I was considering trying to use time.clock in combination with one of the system time's to try and improve the system time resolution but not sure where to start.
It's not a problem to display more precision in the timestamp. Both of the methods I mentioned above show high precision (datetime object has microsecond attribute), but if you call it many times in a loop you will see it only updates that value every 0.01 seconds making it a lot of useless precision. I need a high resolution timer coupled with the timestamp so I can actually compare timestamps at the microsecond level.
