Subject Re: Memory managment and JVM setting for solr

I think you're going at this from the wrong end. There's
no magical way to give your process more memory
than you have on your machine. But, there's no
correlation between the size of your data, especially
when it contains video files and the size of your Solr
index. You're not going to index the binary stuff,
just the meta-data. How do you intend to extract it
anyway? Tika? If so, what format? I think Tika only
supports flash, but that's just a vague memory.

I think you need to back up and explain
a bit more about what you intend to accomplish,
this feels like an XY problem, see:
