    Also post the code.

    A memory leak could be due to poorly written code. Look at the stack trace and see where the loop is that is causing the error. Then look at the code to see why it is not handling the error correctly.

    Can a faulty Ethernet cable over stack the memory?

    --- Update ---

    Or faulty switch?

    I assume the problem could be with bad code that is not handling the hardware problem correctly.
