You should automate (cron in unix or linux, task scheduler in MS) a log rotate, say once a day, or more often if your log is very big.  Basically your machine is running out of resources trying to load a massive log file.

You can manually start a new log using...

fw logswitch

from the command line on your management server. This saves the old log to a file marked with the current date, and starts a new one.
