Look  at the TIME function for quick-and-dirty checking.

More generally, look in Peter Seibel's great book Practical Common  
Lisp. For info on profiling look in this chapter online:


and read the documentation on your lisp implementation. I use sbcl and  
ccl;  both implementations document their profiling functionality.
