Sorry for any confusion.  There is no "server section" to Odin, it is 
simply a PC which is an NTP client to a couple of Internet NTP servers, 
and a couple of local (LAN-side) NTP servers (Bacchus and Hermes).

The graphs show the output of the command:

ntpq -c rv  <host>

parsed by a Perl script which picks up the 21st comma-separated value - 
the offset=<value> pair.

This is documented here:
