If all data fit into RAM, preliminary model conversion is not needed.

For model having 56000 columns and 80000 rows 17 Mb of file and 44.8 Mb
of RAM don't seem very high. Note that the LP preprocessor keeps a copy
of the model, so disabling it (--nopresol) may reduce the memory needed
about twice. However, most of the memory is eaten up by the MathProg

Please see:
for some calculations about the memory requirements.
