Description (partial)

A Cisco 1900 router may send a %SYS-3-NOELEMENT message, similar to:

%SYS-3-NOELEMENT: data_enqueue:Ran out of buffer elements for enqueue -Process= "<interrupt level>"

After that, system behavior can be unpredictable. If the interrupts are rapid enough, the system may become unresponsive (hang), use all available memory to create more buffer elements.

The process has run out of buffer elements and is unable to enqueue data. 

These messages may occur if there is are more than 1000 state changes per second of flow control (RTS/CTS) or modem control (DSR/DTR) lead states, even if modem control or flow control are not configured. Usually, this is caused by a device that is malfunctioning or misconfigured. There is also a chance it could be caused by a faulty or loose cable.
