Faceting is often the reason for high memory usage. If you are not already doing so, do enable
DocValues for the fields you are faceting on. If you have a lot of unique values in your facets
(millions), you might also consider limiting the amount of concurrent searches.

Still, 3.5GB heap seems like quite a bit for a 2GB index. How many documents do you have?
