A query for *:* with rows=0 is quite fast on any Solr version, unless
RAM is too tight.  If your commits are infrequent, subsequent queries
for that information will even faster because they will be served from
Solr caches.

There's no reason to have user code talk to all the shards and aggregate
the document count for the collection -- let SolrCloud handle it and
just query the collection with q=*:*&rows=0.  The numFound value in the
response will cover the entire collection, and Solr will optimize the
query as much as it possibly can be optimized.
