my production server enviroment is like this :
- internet is disable (if need, i can request that)
- installed R
- splunk enterprise(search head) and R are installed in one production server

- indexer clustering : indexer 2, search head 1, master 1

You need openCPU because that is what exposes a web API that interfaces R.
OpenCPU will create a new session (and user) for every request it gets.

thanks for your answer.
i install opencpu and start server locally.
finally i run basic R script in R project app -> R script editor -> run like this :

========== query =================
| dedup sourcetype
| stats count(sourcetype) as "SOURCETYPE_COUNT"
| append[
search index=testindex
| stats count as "TEST_COUNT"
| fillnull value=0

========== R script editor ===========

and i got the R console.

add to another question.
- how to send search result into R script ?
- how to save R script function ?
- can i use R script function in another instance search ?
- but i can use r command in instance search ......

thank you.
