OS : RHEL 7.4

A syslog such as a picture occurs on the Linux server.
I want to know the exact cause and reason for the message.

During the execution of the secons command, it tried to allocate memory and got the "page allocation failure: order 7" error message.  This means it tried to allocate a chunk of memory of 512K and the system did not have any 512K memory slots left.  At the bottom 1/4, you shall see "lowmem_reserve[] . . ." and the next line shows the number of slots for each slot size.  For 512K slot, it has 0 slots left. This means either the problematic system did not have sufficient memory to start with or the memory was so fragmented that it could no longer find memory.  This is a system issue, not a PIM issue.


This is not a PIM issue, please look at increasing the Physical memory to the system and also perform regular housekeeping activities on the server hosting PIM application.
