This means that you have about 18GB of RAM left over to cache a 40GB
index.  That's less than 50 percent.  Every index is different, but this
is in the ballpark of where performance problems begin.  If you had 48GB
of RAM, your performance (not counting possible GC problems) would
likely be very good.  64GB would be ideal.

Your only GC tuning is switching the collector to CMS.  This won't be
enough.  When I had a config like this and heap of only 8GB, I was
seeing GC pauses of 10 to 12 seconds.

One question: Do you really need 14GB of heap?  One of my servers has a
total of 65GB of index (54 million docs) with a 7GB heap and 64GB of
RAM.  Currently I don't use facets, though.  When I do, they will be
enum.  If you switch all your facets to enum, your heap requirements may
go down.  Decreasing the heap size will make more memory available for
index caching.
