This means that the probe is running out of memory to poll the sensors. This can be because some of the sensors are 32-bit sensors and they are only able to use up to 4gb of RAM but in reality it's usually lower since some of those resources are required by other parts of the OS. The best way to solve this problem would be to move some of these sensors to another probe, especially if it is running a lot of WMI, Netflow or Packet Sniffing sensors.

You could try pausing some of the sensors to see if this is the case and if that solves the problem, then move the sensors to a new Remote Probe.
