3 Zookeepers.
733 containers/nodes
735 total cores. Each core ranges from ~4-10GB of index. (Autoscaling splits at 12GB)
10 collections, ranging from 147 shards at most, to 3 at least. Replication factor of 2 other
than .system which has 3 replicas.
Each container has a min/max heap of 750MB other than the overseer containers which have a
min/max of 3GB.
Containers aren't hard limited by K8S on memory or CPU but the machines the containers are
on have 4 cores and ~13GB of ram.

Now that I look at the CPU usage on a per container basis, it looks like it is maxing out
all four cores on the VM that is hosting the overseer container. Barely using the heap (300MB).

I suppose that means that if we put the overseers on machines with more cores, it might be
able to get things done a bit faster. Though that still seems like a limited solution as we
are going to grow this cluster at least double in size if not larger.

We are using the solr:7.7.2 container.
