I got "out of memory" in asa -o file.

E. 09/14 10:32:01. ERROR Out of memory (

Does this mean "out of machine memory" ?

Then, Can I monitoring the available memory using -cs option ?

Here is the result. OS Available: 4489224K, Working Set: 132936K, Cache Target: 1037128K

What is "Working Set" and "Cache Target" ?
