Improve IP/Subnet Matching Algorithm

We assign a 16 bit (i.e. /16) aggregate network to our data-centres. We then sub-net into various VLAN’s which can be of varying bit lengths (e.g. /24, /28). At the moment we have to enter 150+ subnets, whereas with the proposed change we would enter in 1 subnet.

Remove the pattern matching of computer IP information against subnet mask as this is not always correct. Either use only the range specified (or use a CIDR algorithm).

    Also... included in this request should be the ability to prioritize subnets for matching purposes, or prefer subnets with a longer bit/subnet mask (i.e. smaller subnets).

    A real life example:
    A laptop may be connected to both a wireless and wired network. The wireless network spans multiple floors in a building and is a larger subnet (i.e. /20). The wired networks are for each floor and are a smaller subnet (i.e. /24). Currently Asset Management will fail subnet matching, with an error, that there are multiple subnets. This enhancement would prevent that from happening.

    And also log wich subnet is matched when multiple subnets are found
