Sensitivity plots (Interpretation)

I everyone

I was using a command to measure the sensitivity of the parameters to the model that I saw in this forum. Unfortunately, the command throws figures that I do not know their interpretation. I have looked at the file An Introduction to Graphs in Dynare (Pfeifer, 2014), but I did not find something similar.

What do the red dots, the blue dotted lines, and the blue rectangles mean?

The command is the following, and I attach the graph.

I really appreciate any help you can provide.

Could you provide me with the files to generate the picture?

The plots are box-whisker plots. The blue box gives the 25 and 75 percentiles. The red line in the box is the median. The whiskers (blue dashed vertical lines ending with a horizontal black line) indicate 10 times the interquartile range. The red dots indicate the “outliers”, i.e. everything beyond 10 times the interquartile range.
