Shiny RStudio vs Shiny-server sessions

shiny
rstudio
shiny-server

#1

Hi,

Is the equivalent to a restart of RStudio desktop the sudo systemctl restart shiny-server command.

Thanks.


#2

Hi, by equivalent, do you mean: all R processes will be terminated? If so, yes. Restarting Shiny Server terminates all R processes.

Ok thanks. I had found some session memory hold over characteristics that required a restart of the IDE when allocating to global variables outside of a Shiny server function that were non intuitive to me. (I thought killing the process via stop and re-running the code would do it). But I simplified it down to the most direct and pertinent question I could think of. Thanks for clarifying that.
