signal 0x 4 -- illegal instruction.  It could be a bug in your app cause the problem.
Have a look at the /usr/include/sys/signal.h file.
man signal
man sigset
for more details.

please see link below for signals:

Is this error always coming or happened once?

The default action on getting a SIGILL is to produce a core file. If you didn't override the action, you should be able to find the core file and using pstack/dbx/gdb/mdb, figure out just what went wrong.
