It's lack of memory . If you are using something like the RPI , use something more powerful .

Also try setting the respawn parameter true

Thanks for the fast reply. In my setup, I already use a Odroid xu4, which is more powerful than the RPI, but the error msg still remains. I will try set te respawn parameter to true.
