Exactly, the issue is crystal clear. You are already hitting your max bandwidth with 1500+ concurrent connections, of course with 2000+ concurrent connections users will notice severe slowdowns. You have not enough bandwidth to serve your clients.

I suggest to monitor your eth0 links carefully and upgrade to either multiple bonded 1Gig links, 10gig links or more servers.
