It's very possible that you're simply going to need a larger heap than
you have needed in the past, either because your index has grown, or
because your query patterns have changed and now your queries need more
memory.  It could even be both of these.

At your current index size, assuming that there's nothing else on this
machine, you should have enough memory to raise your heap to 5GB.

If there ARE other software pieces on this machine, then the long GC
pauses (along with other performance issues) could be explained by too
much memory allocation out of the 8GB total memory, resulting in
swapping at the OS level.
