Statistics File Issues

ntpd can generate a variety of statistics as it runs.

Over time, any of these statistics files may have undergone a change in its content or format which makes it difficult to analyze "previous" and "current" data.

Let's use this page to discuss these issues and evolve a solution.

What about generating a "comment line" as the first line generated for every statistics file?

Perhaps something like:

 #loopstats v1
 # day now offset freq*1e6 jitter stability*1e6 spoll

This way we could easily grep out the comment lines and/or use a perl program to combine data from different versions of each statistics file into the desired format.
