You should really consider using TCP.
We switched our 2000 nodes+ a month ago, and it saves us a lot of
headeaches. It also makes it much easier to monitor, as TCP connections are
all easily traceable and can be plotted to assess the load-balancer's
situation for instance.

If you really want to keep UDP, the advice I could give would be to use
reusable sockets, which has been implemented quite recently.
