fd:22: hPutBuf: resource vanished (Broken pipe) Pandoc error 83

Hi R-Studio community :grinning:

I am trying to render a large Bookdown book on rstudio.cloud, its on https://jura.tepedu.dk/ running the following in console:

rmarkdown::render_site(output_format = 'bookdown::gitbook', encoding = 'UTF-8')

I get the following output:

Error running filter /usr/lib/rstudio-server/bin/pandoc/pandoc-citeproc:
fd:22: hPutBuf: resource vanished (Broken pipe)
Error: pandoc document conversion failed with error 83

Does anyone know what this error means?

Did it work before? One thing to keep in mind is that RStudio Cloud limit is 1GB of RAM, so could it be that you go over it and process is killed?

Thanks Misha for your quick reply :O)

Yes worked before can I buy more RAM somehow? Or is there some workaround its a Lawbook for students, that has become quite big, but I have made the files containing the chapters reasonably small :O)

RStudio Cloud is in beta and as far as I know 1Gb is a hard limit that can't be increased. But in your case I would first try to find out if that's even the case or maybe there is a different problem that you can actually solve (errors in your source code, for example).

Unfortunately, I'm not sure how to check how much memory is currently being used by your R session, but perhaps you can google for it and find something out?

There was some discussion of that recently, with this advice:
