possibility where I can go and check, which document is consuming more memory? Put in another
way, can I sort the index based on size?

I am not aware of any way to do that.  Might be one that I don't know 
about, but if there were a way, seems like I would have come across it 

It is not very that the large index size is due to a single document or 
a handful of documents.  It is more likely that most documents are 
relatively large.  I could be wrong about that, though.

If you have 290000 documents (which is how I interpreted 0.29 million) 
and the total index size is about 5 GB, then the average size per 
document in the index is about 18 kilobytes.This is in my view pretty 
large.  Typically I think that most documents are 1-2 kilobytes.

Can we get your Solr version, a copy of your schema, and exactly what 
Solr returns in search results for a typically sized document?  You'll 
need to use a paste website or a file-sharing website ... if you try to 
attach these things to a message, the mailing list will most likely eat 
them, and we'll never see them. If you need to redact the information in 
search results ... please do it in a way that we can still see the exact 
size of the text -- don't just remove information, replace it with 
information that's the same length.
