High number of issue links

We have an issue with a high number of issue links (~9K).  The issue count isn't incrementing very rapidly anymore (approx 1 / week) but I'm worried that we'll hit some kind of internal limit that may cause performance degradation or worse.

Is there a limit to how many issue links a JIRA issue can have ?

There shouldnt be a limit for JIRA but iam not sure if there is a performance or stability impact of that big amount of issuelinks for one issue.

I am concerned about a server stability impact specifically. I've hunted the boards but can't find anything similar.  I'm new to JIRA and I'm wondring if I should just file a ticket at this point.  Any suggestions ?
