Hi Hal,

Thanks for coming back. 
Now I understand.  
This is my config: 

enable monitor stats
statistics loopstats peerstats sysstats
statsdir /var/log/ntp/
filegen peerstats file peers type day link enable
filegen loopstats file loops type day link enable
filegen sysstats file sysstats type day link enable

If I wouldn’t write to /var/log/ntp/sysstats “ntpq -c sys” would continuisly count up. 
And I can have either this or that. 
Makes sense in a certain way. 

Kind regards
