I'm not sure what "large db" you are referring to (indexing a RDBMS to Solr?), but the first
thing to do is run ulimit -a (or some flavour of it, depending on the OS) and increase the
open file descriptors limit if the one you see there is just very low (e.g. 1024).  If that
limit is not low, make sure that things are getting closed properly by your app, so there
are no f.d. leaks.
Also, make sure mergeFactor is not ridiculously high.
