Datatables with Firebase Realtime Database takes too much time to load rows

I have initialized my datatables with firebase realtime database. Since I have so much json data on my realtime db, the web page takes too much time to load contents.

This is how i am filling the rows in table.

var rootRef = firebase.database().ref().child("scans/").orderByChild("fullTime");
        rootRef.on("child_added", snap => {
            dataSet = [
                snap.key,
                //snap.child("id").val(),
                snap.child("locationNum").val(),
                snap.child("bagNum").val(),
                snap.child("trackId").val(),
                snap.child("fullTime").val(),
                snap.child("receiveTime").val(),
            ];
            table.rows.add([dataSet]).draw();
        });

        rootRef.on("child_changed", snap => {
            dataSet = [
                snap.key,
                snap.child("locationNum").val(),
                snap.child("bagNum").val(),
                snap.child("trackId").val(),
                snap.child("fullTime").val(),
                snap.child("receiveTime").val(),

            ];
            location.reload();
        });

a.) Any suggestion for above snippet to add rows to datatable? Is there any other way of doing it?
b.) Is there a way to load only some entries at first and then eventually add more entries?
c.) Can i just reload and render the rows that used event like "child_changed" instead of using function location.reload(); ?

and
d.) If its gonna take longer time, then how do i add "Loading..." icon? I have set

"processing": true;


but instead, datatable says "No data available.."

    I'm not aware of Firebase, but this section of the FAQ should help, it discusses various techniques to improve performance,
