Keep R running in the background

Since we know Alteryx uses R for a lot of its predictive and data analysis tools. It takes a while to run the workflow whenever there is R based tool is involved. I was told by a solution engineer that its because its opening and closing R in the background.

 

Sometimes my workflow has a bunch of tools which are running R in the background and it takes forever to run the workflow.

 

I think there should be a user setting which allows user to choose if the want to start R along with Alteryx and keep it running in the background.

 

Thanks,
