I'm an R beginner, and I would like to construct a set of boxplots
showing database function runtimes.
The data I have is currently is in the following format:
this is the function name followed by somewhere between 1 and 10,000
runtimes for each function. The number of runtimes is in milliseconds.
I can easily reformat the base data to provide it to R in a format such
There are about 120 individual functions. I wish to show the top 20
functions by average runtime (ideally sorted by average runtime
descending). Using a boxplot will help show the variation in runtime for
I don't know how to read this data into R so that I can construct the
boxplots. I'd be also grateful for advice on how to filter the output of
the boxplot to show only the top 20.
