Control Center 6.1+ Control the number of processes, events, and alerts that are display when viewing All servers

In a busy MFT environment, it is very easy for the number of events, processes, and event alerts to reach 10,000.  If a curious user clicks on "View all servers", the number of processes, events, and alerts can show to be over 10,000 for all servers.  If a user clicks on any of these items, it can take considerable time for results to be returned.  Also the particular EP where this was done, may not be able to be logged into until the results have been displayed.  Although a user can log onto another EP if one is available, the current design can lead to issues.  Please let me know if you have questions about this.

    There needs to be some parameters add to the engine.properties that will allow the admin to control the number of Alerts, processes, and events that are displayed for all servers.  In a busy MFT environment, it is very easy to reach 10,000 during a given day.  We do not want users to one of those items that is displaying 10,000 items and then it takes considerable time to return results which can impact any user who is logged into the same EP.
