I have found that when I open an RStudio proj that's located on my corporate network, RStudio behaves very erratically and laggy. Creating a new file is slow... anything with git is painfully slow. I've monitored CPU and also network traffic and nothing is getting pegged out. There is hardly any network traffic and typical blips of CPU usage. But it's painful on a network drive. Note that my network drive is > 700 miles away but it's typically very usable. I regularly open large files and copy/save across the wire with other applications.
I've seen in old RStudio support periodic comments about RStudio being slow on a network connection, but nothing recently. Is this something others see?
I recorded a screencast so you all can witness what I'm talking about:
I'm not sure if this is related, but I've found that R's file commands,
file.copy for example are terribly slow across my network. Much more so than file system commands using the same machine. I would not think this would be related, but I thought I'd mention it. Here's a SO question where I illustrate the file system commands.
I am running RStudio Version 1.1.442
