You are not paying attention.  (or I'm doing a really crappy job of 

rawstats has a line for each response packet.

There is a filter between rawstats and peerstats.  Except for refclocks, most 
of the data gets filtered out.  So if the polling interval ramps up to 1024 
seconds, there will be many places in peerstats where the spacing is over 

Broken record time again.  If you set up a system to use the pool (and use 
the default maxpoll), you will have a test case to demonstrate that to you.

Or you can use the data from one of your systems and split out the lines for 
a specific IP Address from peerstats and rawstats and run that into wc.
$ wc -l glypnod-*.
   241 glypnod-peer.
   973 glypnod-raw.
  1214 total

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
