I think their advice was to limit the ADEV calculation for some tau to 300
bins. The standard error on estimating the standard deviation is ~ +- 5%
for 200 samples. So loosely speaking in the neighborhood of 100-300 bins
the resulting adev will have an rms uncertainty of roughly 5%. So limiting
the number of bins to 300 for any particular tau you wish to monitor, you
will see the ADEV wonder up and down over time, but if it exceeds say 5
sigma, 25% something is up.
