[Bro] problem with two specific workers

On second thought, I am getting in excess of 1.1 Mpps. According to Robin's
paper here,
I should be able to process about 880 kpps with 24 workers.

However, I have 20 workers and 400 gigs of ram. When I move the workers up
to 24, my box gets crushed with a load of 20, up from a load of 13-15,  and
I drop even more packets on the floor. Is the only way out of this to stand
up another box and try to use broctrl to load balance between those systems?
