FAP Initial Publish Process Improvement

Currently, every time that FAP goes into Error State (which has been happening more often than we would like), we have to start an Initial Publish to put it back up, which takes a lot of time to complete (from 2 to 5 hours in some cases), and it severely impacts the business closing.

FAP Initial Publish could be improved in many ways, e.g.:

- restarting the data synch/trickling from the point it stopped by the time FAP went into error state, instead to reloading everything from scratch

- assign the highest priority for the FAP threads in PA and Controller, so that it keeps processing until the end before switching to another thread

This way, the business do not get impacted for so long when there is an FAP error.
