It's likely that the host has run out of PIDs, and that's why the RM can't create a new thread. Here are some commands that can help you identify whether this is the issue and increase the maximum number of PIDs allowed.

Check the number of threads running:

ps -elfT | wc -l

Check the current pid_max:

sysctl kernel.pid_max

Increase the pid_max:

sysctl -w kernel.pid_max=4194304

Another command that might be informative is checking the last PID assigned:

sysctl kernel.ns_last_pid
