SCF account holders can run RStudio through a web browser using our JupyterHub.
- Visit https://jupyter.stat.berkeley.edu and use your SCF username and password to login. By default, your RStudio session will be spawned onto the first available standalone Linux server, however you may optionally start your session on a cluster node in case you need access to more processing power. You can also pass SBATCH options to your notebook and specify prologue commands that will run prior to your RStudio startup.
- Once your Jupyter session is active, click RStudio from the Jupyter Lab launcher. If you don't see the launcher, click File > New Launcher. All R packages installed on the system, as well as packages installed by users within their home directories should be available.
In contrast with running RStudio directly on SCF machines and forwarding the display over X11, this should be much more responsive.
