Sorry, I am not sure how to use the correct format here...
My octane is showing a black screen and the Log shows:

Compute error 2097152:814:
compute device 0: Linking 00696900aaaadec4 shader failed
device 0: failed to initialize render thread 0x7fdc09784250

And in the Console window it shows:

Does this mean I don't have enough RAM? or some file is missing in my computer? How can I fix this problem?
Thank you!

which exact model of GPU do you have in your Mac?

Unfortunately old AMD GPUs and Intel GPUs are not supported anymore in new OctaneX PR12/13 for macOS 12 Monterey - there were some Apple Metal driver related issues.

Only AMD Vega, Navi, Big Navi GPUs, or Apple Silicon M1, are supported in macOS 12 Monterey.

If you use denoising, make sure it's enabled in each octane camera tag... retro bowl
