Compute: R Server
1. Where is my data?
Project data on our Ceph storage is mounted in /mnt/smb.hdd.rbd, otherwise accessible as smb://bfh.ch/data/LFE (Linux, macOS) or P:\LFE (Windows).
User homes on our Ceph storage are otherwise accessible as smb://bfh.ch/data/LFE/Users (Linux, macOS) or P:\LFE\Users (Windows).
Note: due to fact that BFH.science and BFH.ch do not run on the same network infrastructure, you cannot access any data on the BFH.ch-only storage (that is anything on smb://bfh.ch/data outside of LFE, or P:\ outside of P:\LFE). Moving BFH.ch to the BFH.science network infrastructure until the end of 2021 will change this.
2. If RStudio fails, how can I restart it?
It happens that RStudio hangs and you cannot access your current session anymore. The following steps allow you to restart RStudio and resume your work.
- Login via ssh to your server:
- Stop rstudio server:
sudo service rstudio-server stop
- Kill rstudio sessions:
sudo rstudio-server kill-all
- Kill rstudio backend:
sudo killall -9 rserver
- Start rstudio server:
sudo service rstudio-server start
If you do not have SSH access to your R server yet, send a email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
