Even if the commit only handles a single document and it's a soft
commit, it is an expensive operation in terms of CPU, and in a
garbage-collected environment like Java, memory churn as well.  A commit
also invalidates the Solr caches, so if you have autowarming turned on,
then you have the additional overhead of doing a bunch of queries to
warm the new cache - on every single soft commit.

Doing commits as often as three times a second (you did say the interval
was 300 milliseconds) is generally a bad idea.  Increasing the interval
to once a minute will take a huge amount of load off of your servers, so
indexing will happen faster.
