The indexing is done incrementally, but a full scan or frequent uploads does create a queue
that will consume memory for a period of time, as do individual requests. If you have low
traffic, you can probably get away with less and reduce the heap size, but the lower you go
there's a chance that garbage collection will slow down normal operation. You can look at
the system status page to see if your memory use is reaching the limit. You can still trim
it down using the techniques I've described as well.
