public static TimeSpan GetDuration(Stopwatch sw, ThreadStart method)
{
	sw.Reset();
	sw.Start();
	method();
	sw.Stop();
	return sw.Elapsed;
}
 
you can put it into any common static class and use as follows:
 
IList dataObjects = GetObjects(); // execution time should be tested

foreach (DataObject do in dataObject)
{
}
 
Execution time can be measured in such way:
 
IList dataObjects = null;
Stopwatch sw = new Stopwatch();
Console.WriteLine("GetObjects executed in {0}", GetDuration(sw, delegate() {
 
dataObjects = GetObjects();
 
}));
foreach (DataObject do in dataObject)
