Goal

Keyword search returns no matches during busy hours, while at other times it does return desired results, i.e problem is intermittent.

Here is a real world scenario, with 3 servers - 1 search and 2 web servers. Network team observes a large amount of connections, e.g, 1400+ per server to 9000 in "TIME_WAIT" state. Moreover, there are several overlapping source port ranges that will confirm source ports being re-used via snat, with bandwidth of 30 Mbs on normal and 105 Mbs on busy days as an example.
