Pretty much just what it says. You're out of memory. Which PM version do you have? If it's Gold, 32-bit or 64-bit? How many logins did you have at the time?

Was the site loaded at the time? You could have been under a denial of service attack. Use the Windows Task Manager to monitor the CPU, Memory, and Thread count for PMServer.exe.

Yes, it seems like someone is trying to attack my server.
Is there any probability that the system has security holes? Someone threatens to hack into my server.

Poker Mavens has some basic protections you can use with "Max FP connections" and "Max PP connections" options in the Server Settings group. But a real denial-of-service attack needs to be filtered upstream before it even reaches your poker server. First use a tool like TCPView to see if that is really what is happening.

Then, the program got stuck and crashed.

If I buy more RAM on my server, will it solve the problem?

Not if it's a result of hacking/DOS attack.

Are you running the latest version (4.36)?
What do you have set for these settings:

Max sessions
Allow duplicate IPs
Max FP connections
Max FP connections per IP
Max PP connections
Max PP connections per IP

What does the Windows Task Manager show for Memory and Threads for PMServer.exe when the out of memory condition occurs?
