The above switch is displaying %% Low on memory; try again later

I can't ssh to the switch so I'm trying to access it through the console. When I console the above message is being displayed.

It could be a bug with a memory leak on the switch , the only way around this a lot of times is to reload the switch to free up the memory . I would look for bugs for your version and possibly upgrade. Also make sure your vty and console sessions have an exec-timeout period on them .

Glen's right. Most of the time, this error message means you've just stumbled into a bug. Reload the switch and upgrade the IOS could be the only way to avoid this issue in the future.
