NSX-Manager UI dead

using the nsx-unified-appliance-3.1.1.0.0.17483106 - I deploy it and then configure NSX on my 4 nodes...  after config, the appliance starts to spit out [xxxx.xxxxx] sysrq: show memory over and over with an ever increasing number in the xxxx.xxxxx.  Eventually the UI server dies I guess, i can't login to it any more and I have to reboot.  This is my second install of this and its the same on both.  I have installed on a 4 node cluster, Vsphere 7.0U1c.  I literally image the hosts, deploy the vcenter, then deploy the unified appliance, create the bits I need to configure NSX on the nodes, let it configure the nodes and thats as far as I get.  I start looking around the UI dashboard, it says all the nodes are up and everything looks fine.  I am using a single nsx-manager as its my lab.  My nodes each have 8 vcpus and 32 GB of memory and all flash storage.  I know I am tight on memory, but there is enough for the VM, it is memory within the VM that is runningout as far as I can tell... It has the preconfigured 16GB allocated.  I tried to increase to 20GB but same thing happens.  I don't know my way around the logs or anything, it looks like there are a lot of Java processess taking a lot of memory - I don't exactly know what to look for next.  I am digging thru /var/logs as best as possible.  I also haven't found how to check the status of the services yet... I guess you do that from the admin console login, I see stop and restart etc, but I don't see any status.

I'm pretty much out of ideas, so any thing, even conspiracy theories!  honestly, I need help. thanks!

To check the services,  ssh in a admin, type get services.

Have you got anywhere else to can test running the vm, outside of that cluster? Maybe try the previous version, see if there are any differences?
