I am relatively new to rstudio-server and I would really appreciate some help with a problem I am having. I have an rstudio-server setup on an aws ec2 instance (t2.large -> 8GiB memory) . I am working with a large online user-behaviour dataset (object.size() = 2.3 GB). I am able to read the file into rstudio-server, but then doing simple filtering tasks on the same object produces the following error: "The previous R session was abnormally terminated due to an unexpected crash. You may have lost workspace data as a result of this crash".
I assume this is because I have run out of useable memory, but my question is whether increasing the memory on my ec2 instance will fix this problem, or whether rstudio-server has an independent top limit memory capacity.
Any guidance would be really appreciated!
