> x2 <- racot$ELAPSED_SECONDS[racot$THREADS==2 & racot$TEST_CORES==2]
> x4 <- racot$ELAPSED_SECONDS[racot$THREADS==4 & racot$TEST_CORES==2]
> x8 <- racot$ELAPSED_SECONDS[racot$THREADS==8 & racot$TEST_CORES==2]
> x16 <- racot$ELAPSED_SECONDS[racot$THREADS==16 & racot$TEST_CORES==2]
> vioplot(x2,x4,x8,x16,names=c("2","4","8","16"),col="Blue")
