Essentially, the OP's research project has become one on making the 
measurements, not one on the results of the measurement.  To do that he 
will need a good understanding of the internals of both NTP and of the 
algorithms used by your performance tool, as well as the delay and 
asymmetry statistics, against time, of the networks used;
