53131A universal counter: Statistics measurement takes a long time

Hello,

Statistics measurements for a 7.5kHz triangular wave (approximately +10max /-10min) is taking a little over a minute.  I have set N=300, On Single:1 and 100kHz filter to On.  Why is it taking so long?  Isn't it only taking 300 samples, which should only take 0.04seconds ( = (1/7.5K)*300 seconds)?  The filter maybe having an effect, but I wouldn't think it would cause the statistic measurement to take 1500 times longer.

Also, I read the 53131A user's manual and I am still confused about what On Single: 1 and On Single: N means.
Isn't the On Single: 1 setting also using N=300 samples?
