It seems my assumption about your setup is correct.
Please, read my first mail again and apply the setting in your
echo 1 20000 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range
Read Documentation/proc.txt for more info about this setting.
Currently, your clients create connections from ports
1024..4999. The client ports are reused, the TCP connections are reused.
Your clients are limited in the number of connections they create.
You probably have ~752 other connections in your clients if you
create only 7200 connections to LVS.
5000-1024=3976, 3976*2clients=7952, 7952-7200=752others
