Search apps often need tweaking for best performance.
We probably need to determine if you are IO bound (because the index
is large enough that there are many disk seeks) or if you are CPU
bound (possible, depending on the faceting).

Perhaps one easy thing to start with is to add debugQuery=true and
report the timings of the different components it gives.
