Dear Rstudio community,
i'm facing a rather mysterious and annoying problem. For the third time in 10 days now, my RStudio performance has turned into snail pace again.
I'm running the latest versions of R and Rstudio (as of 14-03-2019)
The previous 2 times I resorted to a complete wipe of all R and RStudio files on my hard disk, full re installation etc etc, but once again after a few days, the functioning has become tens if not hundreds of times slower than what it should be.
In particular I am trying to run my R Shiny app offline that I have been developing for the past 3 years.
In those three years I've rarely had any problems, and certainly not like this one.
I am becoming rather desperate as I do not understand why the functioning keeps going back to ultra slow mode.
Rebooting the laptop, reinstalling everything doesn't seem to help, or only for a few days.
Does anyone have any idea what could be the cause, or how to solve this?
I can provide what ever information needed to identify the cause of course.
I am running windows Pro 7
I'm running RStudio desktop and a local version of my shiny app
(but whole Rstudio is slow, not just my app)
Rsession is running around 300.000K on the start, and is super slow from the get-go after complete fresh reboot and start up, nothing else major running on the laptop
Rstudio.exe *32 is at about 220.000K Doesn't seem to be problematic.
compared to yesterday, I haven't changed anything on my laptop, but suddenly the speed of R is unworkable again, and this is the third time it occurs now in 2 weeks.
Sometimes RStudio also throws a "can't connect while checking for updates" on startup, but not always.
Thanks in advance for any help,
Mark v D.
