Error Message    %STE-3-CRASHINFO_MALLOC_FAILED: Module (CRASHINFO) 
failed to allocate memory buffer

Explanation    The module needs to allocate a memory buffer to parse and print crash information. The memory usage on the system is probably too high to allow the module to allocate such a memory buffer.

Recommended Action    If this condition occurred when you entered a command and the memory usage on the system is too high, resolve the high memory usage condition and retry the command. You can also reboot the module and retry the command. Although you reboot the module, crash information is preserved because it is stored in NVRAM.
