If Solr is stopping, then something went wrong.  Something that will 
probably continue to go wrong if you simply restart Solr.  An OOM (out 
of memory) like Paras mentioned in his reply is the most likely cause.

You haven't mentioned which version of Solr you've got.  Most recent 
versions, when started on a non-Windows operating system, will 
self-terminate if Java throws an OutOfMemoryError (OOME) exception.  If 
this happens, a separate logfile with "oom" in its filename should be 
created.  The reason that this happens is that operation of any Java 
program is completely unpredictable after an OOME.

If OOME is happening, then you have exactly two ways to deal with it. 
They are outlined here:
