The output of tmadmin/pf may not list all the factories but just their subset if the number of factories is large.
This is because of the TMIB request process mechanism currently used by tmadmin/pf, which sends a TMIB request to BBL
and then BBL forwards the request to the ultimate service provider, master or slave Name Manager.  The Name Manager
initially allocates a fixed-size buffer to hold the factory entries, and if the buffer is full due to a large number
of factories, it will allocate another buffer to hold the remaining entries. The number held in the base buffer is
stored as TA_OCCURS; the count of remaining entries is held in TA_MORE.  Currently, the tmadmin/pf command only
outputs the TA_OCCURS entries.  To work around this current design limitation, one can use direct MIB operations to
obtain all the TA_OCCURS+TA_MORE entries.
