Allocation Performance - Allocations taking a long time to run

The customer has created allocation formula rules, that performs allocations across several dimensions, using all the member values of some of those dimensions. Both the Cost pool (Source) and the Basis are looping through the dimensions and segment values in the calculation. When running the generate Allocation job, the processes run for hours and needed to be cancelled. The customer is requesting assistance with reviewing the performance of the allocation processing. They want to understand why these allocations are taking an excessive amount of time to run.
