JVM Severe memory error


Looking at my SD5 SP1 log files I see this lines frequently:

16/Ago/2006 15:07:27;9800;30;com.hp.ov.obs;SEVERE;JVM uses 532.742.144/532.742.144= 100% of maximum memory (total/max) of which 318.033.656/532.742.144= 59% is free (free/total).

Why is this a SEVERE log entry? From what I understand, the JVM is taking about 512M or memory (its max value), and 60% of it is free. It must be enough memory for SD5 to use, or am I understanding this in the wrong way?
