Hi,

If the index size on disk is about 750 GiB then a memory usage of 2.3 G heap space for the FST seems fine. It's just a bit strange that you only have 10 million documents!

Are those documents huge and have lots of indexed text content, possibly OCR/scanned stuff? If this is the case, the term dictionary may get huge because of many terms with incorrect spelling.

Please also give us a "ls -lh" of your index directory to make a guess.

Uwe
