I have a rather general question regarding computational performance of the RStudio Server (open source edition).
Although being just an experiment at the moment, our IT department installed the server on a quite potent machine, which should in theory outrun any individual PC or laptop usually available at our offices. Despite this fact, the server computes and executes scripts slower than an ordinary windows PC. We benchmarked this using the benchmarkme package.
My server admin looked into this and found that on the Windows machine more cores seem to be utilized while on the Linux RStudio-Server only one core seems to be used (not using any explicit parallel coding). This would explain the differences.
I am a bit lost here. Is there a way to configure the server so that it uses all the potential computational power (similar to what the windows machine seems to be doing)? I really want to keep my RStudio-Server, but this hinges on the server delivering a performance boost (and not an actual loss).
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
