You would need to include info for everything that would live on the
Solr instance ... but even that estimator can only provide you with a
*guess* as to how much heap size you need, and depending on how you
actually use Solr, it might be a completely incorrect guess.  You've
already been given the following URL in response to the initial
question, and gotten other replies about why there's no way for us to
give you an actual answer:

Testing and adjusting the actual live production system is the only way
to be absolutely sure what your requirements are.  Anything before that
is guesswork.
