I suspect that is due to too-frequent commits, too small heap or
something third, unrelated to EmbeddedSolrServer itself. Underneath the
surface it is just the same as a standalone Solr.

We're building our ~1TB indexes individually, using standalone workers
for the heavy part of the analysis (Tika). The delivery from the workers
to the Solr server is over the network, using the Solr binary protocol.
My colleague Thomas Egense just created a small write-up at

Maybe if you send the documents one at a time, but if you bundle them in
larger updates, the post-method should be fine.
