We present direct real-time experimental measurements and numerical modeling of temporal and statistical properties for the Ytterbium-doped fiber laser with spectral bandwidth of ~2 GHz. The obtained results demonstrate nearly exponential probability density function for intensity fluctuations. A significant decrease below the Gaussian probability has been experimentally observed for intensity fluctuations having value more than 2.5 of average intensity that may be treated as indication of some mode correlations.
