for testing speed of scripts i need to get time in milisec .
Is it posible on ash ?

this isn't really an openwrt related question, but did you try time ?

cant find or understand how to get curent time in milisecond

do you need start, and stop time, or run time ?

i need to get time at some point in script
like start and end time
and then calculate

why, when time give you this OOTB ?

i need to measure speed for different function in my scripts


some functions



idk what OOTB means

Ok, and ?

Pretty sure google does.

busybox contains common shell commands, but each with limited features.

try installing the fullblown date command via opkg: coreutils-date

thanks a lot now i can test
iw with grep awk works faster than json

root@AP3:~# /root/
ee:52:2a:09:59:ba -32
111 and 41

almost 2 times
for my task grep better
ofcouse json is much powerfull than grep awk etc but in my case iw works beter

yes i need to compare json and grep with iw
so iw with grep in my case works faster 2 times
so i apply iw with grep in my script
but i know the power of json
