Subject Re: TPS with Solr Cloud

How many documents do you have? How big is the index?

You can increase total throughput with replicas. Shards will make it slower, but allow more

At 8000 queries/s, I assume you are using the same query over and over. If so, that is a terrible
benchmark. Everything is served out of cache.

Test with production logs. Choose logs where the number of distinct queries is much larger
than your cache sizes. If your caches are 1024, it would be good to have a 100K distinct queries.
That might mean of total log size of a few million queries.
