Create timers

To track internal processes in your mobile app, you can create a high-precision timer that runs once and records the elapsed time, in nanoseconds.

Use the following methods to work with timers:

  • To start a timer, use the startTimerWithName: method.
  • To stop a timer, use the stopTimerWithId: method.


To find the elapsed time, run a search in Splunk Enterprise on the timer name, for example:

tag=mint timerName="Timer1"

The search results display the elapsed time in nanoseconds:

   . . .
   device: x86_64
   elapsedTime: 18446744073707583000
   extraData: { }
