White screen on running long simulation in R Studio


When I run a simulation in R studio that requires more than a day to complete, it works fine for a couple of hours and then encounters the white screen of death.

I've tried changing to software rendering, deleting local app data files, reinstalling Rstudio, and there is no .Rdatafile in my working directory.

If someone has a solution, it would be great. Thank you!

Try running outside RStudio in a terminal R console. It may be something like a ulimit() issue running up against some other constraint at the same time that chokes off the error message and freezes the IDE.

I ran it in command prompt terminal, and it worked. Thanks!
