Yes, I agree that makes sense. I would wish to see at minimum the decimal
point and tenths of milliseconds. On the system I want to monitor, the
precision is reported as -19, but the offsets need at least four decimal
places of milliseconds to be plotted with reasonable accuracy (i.e. tenths
of microseconds are needed).
