SSP to support 9000+ IPs/range nodes in Inbound Netmaps for all protocols

Currently, we have 9000+ IPs/CIDR ranges to allow the traffic from. We have added 9000+ entries in Netmap nodes but when we try to edit/save/add more nodes manually the SSP CM GUI is hanging/breaks/not responding properly/going to inoperable state. Also, SSP currently doesn't support "/15, /28, /26, /23, /27, /25 etc" CIDR ranges. But, we do have wide variety of subnet/CIDR ranges to allow from SSP. In the same way we have to add the 9000+ IP's to different protocol netmaps. This will be useful to support all the IP's/ranges for all protocol netmaps to eliminate IPTables entires and have SSP to whitelist the traffic at one place. IBM Support suggested us to open a RFE for consideration of increasing the nodes limit for netmaps as the GUI is not build to handle this limit.
