Where are they waiting? Want to paste a thread dump on pastebin or
something when you are seeing the phenomenon and paste a link in here?
Are all handlers doing work?

What happens if 10 client instances each of ten threads doing your task list?

You have cluster diagrams? The amount of traffic in and out of the
box is constant when you up the number of client instances from 400 to
800? You are not something silly like network bound?
