I am using the mediation <https://cran.r-project.org/package=mediation>
package to run a mediation analysis.
But when I call the `mediate` function, R eats up all RAM, then it eats
up all swap, and then RStudio suddenly closes.
The same happens if I call `Rscript` from the terminal, and the terminal
Here is measures for RAM and swap. Notice the peaks:
I have Fedora Worstation 24.
This happens BOTH with the R 4.0.5 that uses Open BLAS provided in the
Fedora repository, and a custom R 4.1.0 I compiled from source linked
against Intel MKL.
It doesn't seem to happen every time, some times (rarely), the RAM stays
constant (around 40/50%) and it works (it takes a long time through).
What is the cause of this? How can I debug?
