reloo=T crashes R

When I’m trying to compare models with loo( fit1 , fit2 , reloo=T ) R crashes (it says R session aborted). I’m not sure when I began seeing this error, but it happens every time I use reloo, regardless of the model type. I’m running R 3.6.0 and brms 2.9.3 on Windows.

My first guess would be that it ran out of RAM.

I’ve got 32 GB of RAM - but why would it run out of RAM when doing reloo but not when running the models to begin with? Shouldn’t the demands be similar?


Proportional to the number of points it has to refit without, but usually 32 GB would be plenty. It may crash due to reloading the dll as well.
