I'm trying to lower the amount of connections my router is pushing so I can pump more threads into SB/GSA. Currently I've lowered the TIME_WAIT timeout in DD-WRT from 120s to 60s, and the connections drop out A LOT quicker. I usually run my GSA HTML timeout at 60s as well.
I'm curious though, are most of the GSA timeouts happening when the TCP process is in "TIME_OUT"? Or is it for example, SYN_send/receive? If I could lower the TIME_WAIT timeout to 30s, it would dramatically increase the number of threads I could use. If you're not sure I understand, but figured I'd ask.

Also, does more threads lower GSA's ability to function properly. Meaning, currently I use the same amount of threads as I have proxies. So right now I have 100 dedicated proxies and use 75-100 threads. Let's say I acquire another 100 proxies and use 200 threads. Would this lower the functionality / verified links that GSA can produce, or is the software able to function properly at high thread count (so long as you have the proxies to match it)?
