console.timeEnd()

The console.timeEnd() stops a timer that was previously started by calling console.time().

See Timers in the documentation for details and examples.

Note: This feature is available in Web Workers

Syntax

console.timeEnd(label);

Parameters

label
The name of the timer to stop. Once stopped, the elapsed time is automatically displayed in the Web console along with an indicator that the time has ended.

Examples

console.time("answer time");
alert("Click to continue");
console.timeLog("answer time");
alert("Do a bunch of other stuff...");
console.timeEnd("answer time");

The output from the example above shows the time taken by the user to dismiss the first alert box, followed by the time it took for the user to dismiss the second alert:

Notice that the timer's name is displayed when the timer value is logged using timeLog() and again when it's stopped. In addition, the call to timeEnd() has the additional information, "timer ended" to make it obvious that the timer is no longer tracking time.
