Instant reactions:

1> that's probably too much memory. Try, as Lance said, 1/2 of your
memory. Uwe Schindler wrote an excellent blog about this issue as it
relates to MMapDirectory

2> You've doubled the number of docs on the server and you're seeing a
doubling of the response time, right? On average, the number of
documents that have to be scored has also doubled, so I'm not entirely
surprised. If everything is in memory (which it sounds like it may
well be) then this isn't particularly surprising.

3> One note of caution. Saying "a 14 GB index (or 28G index) isn't
very meaningful. The *.fdt and *.fdx files in your index directory are
where the verbatim copy of the data is stored for those fields where
stored="true" in your schema. The contents of these files are almost
totally irrelevant to the memory requirements for searching. I've seen
these files range form < 5% of the index to over 80%.
