Subject Re: WeakIdentityMap high memory usage

Yes, definitely. Our typical setup is 16Gb physical RAM and -Xmx4G per node (index size is
about 1-1.5Gb per node). So there is plenty of room for OS cache, I guess. I'll take a closer
look at the number of major page faults, but at the moment iostat says that everything is
pretty fine.

On the other hand, it seems like we could pack those search nodes more densely on RAM (we
have 20 of those), but it's the topic for another story.
