The "killed" message means the kernel killed it.
Look in /var/log/messages for the reason!
It can be a bad device driver, broken hardware, or "out of memory" (oom).
Your awk script reads the two files into memory (plus some meta information).
At the same time the kernel wants to cache the two files in memory. So I think your problem is oom.
(Therefore, give the system some swap space! Swapping is slow but the better alternative to oom.)

Well it seems I need to use something other than awk, awk was suggested to be use by someone on this post, so I gave it a try. I am open to use other tools though.
