This depends on a lot of factors like the schema and analysis chain you use, 
the total size of your index, and the hardware. But if you want a ballpark 
figure, I'd say about 1-2 MB/s.

Here is some data for one of our production systems running on a typical VPS:

Total fields: 3
Full text field: 2
Highlightable fields: 2
Documents: 20,000
Raw input size: 35 MB
Index size: 80 MB
Analysis chain:
Total time to reindex: 30s

This includes the time to pull all of the data out of a PostgreSQL database, 
prepare it for indexing, and some other unrelated operations which shouldn't 
have a large impact.
