Sounds like you hit PHP's memory limit.  Check your /etc/php.ini file's
"memory_limit" parameter.  I believe it defaults to 128M and the Cacti
install buggers it to 512M.

Using 512M seems a bit high to me.  We run a limit of 256M and monitor
hundreds of machines.  But we also use php-fpm with fastcgi, not an
embedded mod_php, so there's perhaps 20 PHP processes--each able to use
256M each.
