Getting npm error 137


Since today, our npm build tasks in the shared gitlab runner fails with the following message:

[90](__________________-#L90)npm ERR! code ELIFECYCLE

[91](__________________-#L91)npm ERR! errno 137

Upon investigation, apparently this error is due to out of memory issues during compilation.
Currently using shared runner " gitlab-runner 14.1.0-rc1 (e9489c8a) on docker-auto-scale 72989761" with docker image “node:12.14.1”.

Is there any known shared runner issues? How can we mitigate this situation?

Thank you,
