SCF account holders can use RStudio via a web browser through JupyterHub.

  • Visit and use your SCF username and password to logon. 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 on New > RStudio Session to start. All R packages installed on the system, as well as packages installed by users within their home directories should be available.

In contrast with using RStudio directly on SCF machines, this avoids sending the GUI window over the web to your machine, which can have low responsiveness.
