When using loadpricelist to load pricing data, a user received PIN_ERR_NO_MEM. How can we resolve this problem?

When using loadpricelist to load pricing data, it took 7 minutes to load 2MB of plan transition pricing data (approximately 10,000 transitions).
When loading 100,000 plan transition data, the user estimated 70 minutes or more to load all the transition data. Is there a possibility to optimize this loading time?
