If Solr is using 4 to 5 GB of memory on your system, it is only doing 
that because you told it that it was allowed to.

If you run a Java program with a minimum heap that's smaller than the 
max heap, which Solr does not do by default, then what you will find is 
that Java *might* stay lower than the maximum for a while.  But 
eventually it WILL allocate the entire maximum heap from the OS, plus 
some extra for Java itself to work with.  Solr 8.0 and Solr 8.1 are not 
different from each other in this regard.
