Make sure it isn't doing a Solr commit on each document.

Is it slow immediately, like on the first 100 documents, or only after 

When you do see it indexing very slow, check the size of the Solr index - 
you should make sure that you have enough system memory available for file 
caching to hold the entire Solr index.

Do you have Solr auto-commit enabled?

I am using Apache ManifoldCF framework which connects to my local system
and passes all the documents in C drive to Solr.

I am not doing any searches while indexing.

There is total 362GB of data needs to be indexed. I am not performing any
complex analysis.
