Enlarge listen queue on backend (i.e. uwsgi app).  According to 
[1] it should be possible via something like


in uwsgi.xml.  Note that your OS may require tuning to make 4096 
possible, something like "echo 4096 > /proc/sys/net/core/somaxconn". 
Refer to your OS manuals for details.

There is no kqueue on ubuntu, the best event method it has is 
epoll.  This is unrelated though.
