For each possible graph, there is a command-line option that generates
only that graph.  And the default directory is /var/log/ntpstats.  So
you can say, e.g., this:

ntpviz --local-offset -g | display -

and get an instant report.  (The -g tells it to generate PNG; without it you
get the GNUPLOT.)
