This is really Solr specific stuff and should be on solr-user.

You want to give the JVM the least amount of memory such that
everything still works, and allowing for a little index growth.  What
that amount is will depend a lot on which fields you sort on , which
fields you facet on, all your caches, etc.  The reason you want to
minimize the amount of JVM memory is so that the OS can cache
important parts of the index with the remaining free RAM.

Large heap sizes also lead to long GC pauses.
