kernel: table is full

My server stopped responding on web and ssh today.

I couldn't even login at the console, got an error stating something
about a missing *.so file in /usr/..somewhere

I ctrl-alt-del restarted and now everything is up again.

in /var/log I can read similar lines:

[date-time] kernel: table is full
[date-time] last message repeated 17371 times
[date-time] last message repeated 97223 times

I thought I was running out of disk, but a df states differently
But when I do a df everything looks good.

Any clue what this is about?
