I am getting java.lang.OutOfMemory error?


I am trying to view confluence system information and when I click on the link I am getting

org.apache.velocity.exception.MethodInvocationException: Invocation of method 'getModifications' in class com.atlassian.confluence.admin.actions.ViewSystemInfoAction threw exception java.lang.OutOfMemoryError at /admin/systeminfo.vm[line 99, column 23]
at org.apache.velocity.runtime.parser.node.ASTIdentifier.execute(ASTIdentifier.java:237)

caused by: java.lang.OutOfMemoryError
at java.io.FileInputStream.readBytes(Native Method)

Can someone tell me the reason and solution for this.
