Hi. Peter. 

 Thanks for replying.

 I only have 2 servers, each CPU with 8 cores. Each server has 6G memory. So I 
have 16 CPU core in total. But I have 70 solr cores so I have to use them on my 
2 servers. Based on my observation, even when the search is processing, the CPU 
usage is not high. The memory usage is not high too. Each solr(jetty) instance 
on consume 40M-60M memory. My server always have 2-3G memory availabe.

I am using jetty.

For the moment, I really don't know. I tried to use java -sever -jar start.jar 
to start jetty/solr. I saw when solr start, sometimes some core search for 
simple keyword like "design" will take 70s, of course some only take 0-15ms. 
From my aspect, I do believe it is the harddisk accessed by these cores deplays 
each other. So finally some cores fall behind. But the bad news for me is the 
solr distriubted search's speed is decided by the slowest one.

Sorry. What are you asking me to post?
