Confirm that factory can start 1500 entries at a time without issues
This was raised during June 28, 2017 stakeholders meeting. Factory should be able to start without issues even with 1500 entries.
These higher number of entries is going to expose other scaling issues, like slow submission, slow matching in frontend etc. which should be addressed as different tickets in future.

I was able to submit jobs and get them to run on a factory with the modifications in branch v3/17067. My speed tests showed that epoll() was faster than select() under any conditions, and poll() was faster than select under many conditions. Epoll is only implemented for linux, poll() exists for most but not all, so I coded it to try epoll, fail over to poll, then fail over to select even though we only run it on linux as far as I know.
