Strange alarms from a linux server - from processes and controller

I had a linux server lock up and the last alarms received were...


processes:  Internal error: Unable to find any processes.


...followed 10 seconds later by...


controller:    Probe 'processes' FAILED to start (fork)(command=processes)error=(0) Resource temporarily unavailable


We noticed a spike in the load average as well at this time.


Can you tell me what causes the "internal error" in the processes probe?

Can you tell me what "resource" was temporarily unavailable in the controller probe?
