For a while now I had the impression that my RStudio installation had gotten slower and slower.
Today, after installing the newest version (2023-09.0-463), I got the following:
- ca. 25s to start RStudio (not loading any previous project)
- ca. 20s to restart the R-session (from an empty session)
For comparison, I then installed the oldest version I could find (2021.09.1-372), which resulted in:
- ca. 3s startup
- ca. 3s restart
Looking at the request log, it seems that during startup "set_user_state" and during session restart "get_environment_state" and "set_client_state" are to blame.
But why? What is causing this enormous difference? As it is now, the newer R-studio versions are basically unusable for me.
