I suspect that you are hitting various select(2) system call limitations.
First of all, you probably want to re-define FD_SETSIZE in include/config.h
and xstd/include/xstd.h. The current limit is 4096. You should set it to the
maximum number of FDs your system supports. Ideally, it should be a job of a
configure script, but we do not have one at the moment.

They say Sun does not support more than 1024 FDs with select(2) system call.
Polygraph uses select(2) because there is no poll(2) on FreeBSD. I do not
know how you can fix that other than waiting for us to implement a poll
support as an option.

See FD_SETSIZE above. I am not sure if IRIX has select(2) limitations similar
to Solaris. Hopefully not.
Finally, look at how many OS hacks has to be applied on FreeBSD in order to
support high request rates ("Software" section):
I would be very surprised if other OSes will let you do high loads without
any tuning. If you make them work, please submit the list of tuning
parameters/hacks to us.
The last comment has nothing to do with the error you are getting though. If
you manage to fix that error, you will discover many more problems that are
irrelevant to Polygraph and must be fixed on a kernel/protocol level to
simulate high loads...

The server does not get more load than a client can generate. Try running
several clients against one server, and you are likely to get the same error
on the server side as well.
