Specifically I can't say why it's happening based on that, but given
the number of sites/ports you might be better off running them
individually in a bash script. This will let perl free up memory
between each set of host+port combinations. at the simplest level,
just have a sh file with lines like this in it:
  ./nikto.pl -h example.com -p80,443 -o output.html

but obviously you can get fancier from there with options and whatnot.
If you have them go to multiple output files (one per host for
example) you can also run multiple sh scripts at the same time to do a
bit more in parallel.
