Is it possible to log the Viewer output of Rstudio to file when running multiple chains in parallel?
It is in tempdir(). It might get deleted after the run is done because we had complaints that they were consuming all of the disk space when calling stan many times.
Nice question @virgodi@boogdri, can you more accurately describe where the temp directory is stored? Wondering if it's possible to set up an independent process which scrapes from that location.
When R starts, it makes a random writable directory that is returned by tempdir(). I think there is an environmental variable that controls which parent directory is used.
I have implemented the inverse: I run Stan in a separate thread and read the log file to display a progress bar in Shiny:
