Hello there! Rstudio tells me that it disabled R source file monitoring and Diagnostics .
This issue discussed it, but never solved it: RStudio file monitoring failure
Here is my system:
Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
Rstudio version 1.4.999
The above mentioned post suggested
'Something is consuming inotify watches on your system' and the post provided a script to run. which I did.
So what is consuming inotify watches (maybe better to ask, what not):
- Atom (editor) (Several processes)
- /usr/libexec/tracker-miner-fs (some sort of file indexer for ubuntu)
- syncthing (but isn't tracking this folder)
- snap store
- gnome session
And probably more.
But the top consumer (according to the script) is atom. with a whopping 41923 consumes (/snap/atom/263/usr/share/atom/atom --type=renderer --enable-experimental-web-platform-features --field-trial-handle=1016)
I changed the settings in Atom from native filesystem watcher to emulated. and now I do not see the warning at startup. and the script tells me that the top inotify watcher count is tracker-miner-fs
