Just tested these values. Varnish is nearly dead after restarting with these new values. Only a few requests will be served. I think, we have to wait :)

Did you try increasing thread_pool_reserve as well? The default is 5%
of thread_pool_min and the maximum is 95%.

To stay with the same maximum, you could try something like:

-p thread_pools=2
-p thread_pool_min=2000
-p thread_pool_max=5000
-p thread_pool_reserve=500
