Here's what I usually do on windows:

from time import clock, strftime, gmtime

start = clock()

... do you work here...

end = clock()

elapsed = end - start
print "Time Taken to finish: %s" % (strftime("%Hhrs: %Mmins: %ssecs",

If you wish to record in miliseconds, you'll have to do some math on the
'elapsed' value.

Thanks and best regards,
