I know of several cases where analyzers don't produce accurate real time data so I choose not to install analyzers.

I personally read the plugs because they don't lie. I read plugs for every mode; idle, cruise, 2BBL acceleration and WOT. You can tune a carb in pretty good with plug readings. It is not too hard, once your carb is tuned you can forget about it. I set my idle lean so plug is white. Cool thing is a grey plug will change back to white if you run it lean; so you don't have to use new plugs for every test.

If you want to go to the next level of tuning then a G-Force type computer would be nice. Just plug into lighter socket. They provide accurate acceleration data so you can tune your car very precisely.
