Default CADO-NFS error (exit code -9)

Hi all, I am factoring a C143 but the program stopped in error, with no mention of what kind. Here are the last few lines diplayed.

Info:Square Root: Creating file of (a,b) values
Warning:Command: Process with PID 1917 finished with return code -9
Error:Square Root: Program run on server failed with exit code -9
Error:Square Root: Command line was: /home/ubuntu/cado-nfs/build/ip-172-31-36-46/sqrt/sqrt -poly nfsdata/c145.poly -prefix nfsdata/c145.dep.gz -dep 0 -t 8 -side0 -side1 -gcd > nfsdata/c145.sqrt.stdout.4 2> nfsdata/c145.sqrt.stderr.4

I resumed the computation and had the same issue. Can it just be that not enough memory is available? Thank you in advance.
