Looks like you ran out of/low on highmem or lowmem pages?

check /proc/meminfo

HighTotal:     2227668 kB
HighFree:       362404 kB

Also Dell 2650 doesn't support 32GB of ram, only 12GB, so re-check
what hardware your running(run dmidecode). It sounds like your
using a 32-bit OS, if so(uname -m), then upgrade your system (hardware
too if needed) to a 64-bit OS. Nobody should run 32GB of ram on a
32-bit system that is just stupid crazy.

I don't even think Oracle supports 32-bit anymore.
